Edexcel IGCSE: draft short writing task

I am trying to get my y11s to deliberately plan a short task for the short writing question.  Too many plan to write and simply write until the time runs out.  My idea is to consciously plan for no more than 4 paragraphs to try and help them, structure their work.


This powerpoint and draft is designed to help students understand an approach to the writing which should deliver results.


I wrote alongside them, and post my offering here:  marks out of 10?  I did my best….
