They will be given opportunities to review, revise and edit their writing.
They will be given opportunities to present writing in different forms and styles, including digitally and online. Learners will be tasked with creating a spooky story in time for Halloween. They must read spooky stories in advance to form an idea of how spooky stories are written, then plan and finally create their stories.
