The second third were working on a recount based on a short story called ‘The Hitchhiker by Roald Dahl, It is a magnificent story about an incredible ‘fingersmith’ he once met, and gave a lift. I shall not tell you any more though, as I would hate to give away the end. Anyway, the students had to write their own version of The Hitch Hiker; same title, different story(Recount/moments in time). They then had to review each other’s stories, discuss them, and give feedback.
The final third were working on their goals. It’s a lot harder than it sounds, because Mr Eames will not settle for one sentence, you need 2 metres worth of writing for each goal! (Ok , maybe I’m exaggerating a bit.) The students had to work out a few good goals backed up with reasons and evidence for why they chose them. Then they were free to blog! (Florence)
