New Topic: Mystery Stories
Over the next few weeks we will be looking how to write mystery stories. We will be learning how to use 'Show, Don't Tell' and other literary techniques to create suspense in our writing. Within this we will be looking at a number of SPaG areas in our new SPaG flash sessions at the start of our longer lessons on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
