Writing – Recount Text

Choose  an event to retell.   For example.

  • make your favourite sandwich?
  • going to your football/rugby/Brownies/swimming club
  • attending a party
  • weekend event

Retell the event by using the Recount Text Structure.   Remember this has already happened and you should write in the past tense e.g. I went to the park.  I ate an apple.    You can write this or you can record yourself orally retelling the event.

Title:  what is the text about?

Orientation:  Provide information about Who?  Where? and When?

Sequence of Events:   What happened?    First…  Then…. Next….  After…. Finally

Personal Comment:   How did you feel about the event?

Below is an example to help you.

Writing- Descriptive Text

Choose a relative or friend and draw a detailed picture.

 

Label your drawing using adjectives ( eg short, brown hair) to describe what the person looks like.

Think about what things your friend/relative likes to do and make some notes on the back.

Then write your description using your labelled plan. Remember to use the following structure:

  • Title ( to identify who the text is about)
  • Introduction ( who it is )
  • Characteristics ( what does the person look like and what can the person do)
  • Personal Comment ( evaluation – how do you feel about this person).
