Year 11: Paper 1, Question 5

Standard

The homework from today’s lesson:
To write a timed response (40 minutes), describing one of the following:

  • A beach
  • A seaside town
  • A swimming pool

Think about what perspective you could write from.  How creative can you be?  What language devices can you use?  Remember to think carefully about your vocabulary. Use PIPS to help you (vary your…paragraphs, interesting detail, punctuation and sentences).

Some resources to help you revise:
