Key Skills Literacy work 11th October 2013

Look back at the picture from last week. Once you have fully analysed the image, please write a descriptive paragraph based on your interpretation of the image. Make sure that you include lots of adjectives, adverbs as well as a description of the different senses and feelings to help set the scene for the reader. Remember your VCOP and writing targets for this term. You may complete this either on the blog or in your key skills book.

Due date: 16th October 2013

Literacy Key Skills – 4th October 2013



In guided reading, we have been using our inference and deduction skills to work out what is going on in the text.  We would like you to practice these skills further, using a picture.

Look at the picture-Annotate a copy of the image or write notes in your key skills book, telling us what you think is happening.  When annotating, think about:

 What do you definitely know & how can this tell you more about the image?

 Who? What? Where? When? Why?

 What is being hinted at?

This work needs to be handed in on Wednesday 9th October and will be useful preparation for next week’s key skills work.
