Titanic Open Afternoon Feedback Survey
Well done to those of you who completed the Dunkirk research task (17/27). I was impressed that most of you used the article and video to select the key information and then para-phrased (reworded) it in your own words. This is an important skill for studying, researching and writing your own texts. I was pleased to see that the majority of you used correct punctuation, capital letters and spelling. Only a few of you made mistakes that could have been easily corrected if you had read over your work before submitting the post. These ‘quick fix’ errors are easily avoidable and it is your responsibility to check your work. The criteria was for the summary to be ‘around 50’ words and most of you hit the mark, however if you were way over please try to summarise the key points.
Please take the time to read your peers’ summaries.
During ww2, Dunkirk was a retreat back to England by the British army across the English channel. It took place between the 26th of may-4th of june 1940. 338,226 were saved from beaches. Meanwhile British soldiers were still getting bombed by the germans. This evacuation was code named Operation Dynamo.
On the 4th of July, 1940,Nazi forces seized the French port of Dunkirk that had nine days earlier been full of 338,000 British soldiers and a few French that had come up to help protect France from invasion but with the English Channel behind them and Nazi forces advancing on them they needed to evacuate the port and fast on any boat that was free.
1940 German army took over French port of Dunkirk. Month later German forces went through the west stormed into France May 24 ready to take Dunkirk. Germans stopped the attacks so their plans didn’t go to plan. People evacuated May 26. Men stranded Germans going towards them.Boats arrived to save them.German captured Dunkirk. Soldiers went back to fight
After marking your first P7 Spelling Homework, there are a few points I’d like to clarify. In general, they were a good standard with neat handwriting, well laid out and the sections completed correctly. So well done. However, there were a few common mistakes I’d like to correct:
- One list/unit per fortnight. Quite a lot of you had completed Unit/List 1 and 2. You only complete one per fortnight .e.g. the spelling rule we are focussing on. The reason you sometimes have more than one unit on a spelling sheet is to save paper.
- You must write the date in the margin (2.9.16) and an appropriate title .e.g. Unit 1 ‘ac-‘ ‘ad-‘. ‘Spelling Homework’ is not specific enough because it will all be spelling homework in your Spelling Homework jotter!
- Please write the sub-headings of each section. This will help you to check you have completed them all.
- Please read the instructions carefully to ensure you are completing the task correctly. A lot of you never completed each section correctly. Please see the example below to check how it should be completed.
- Section 3 – Fill in the missing words should have every sentence copied and completed in your jotter AND choose one of the spelling words to write one sentence of your own.
- Please correct any mistakes. Remember the marking code.
