 Post subject: model english essays
PostPosted: Mon Jan 15, 2007 9:13 pm 
Hi all,
Just wondered...would anyone know where i can get examples of model english stories that an 11 yr old going into a top school might write?

Even if anyone has any copies of their own, i wouldn't mind paying for them?

Many thanks in advance...

This is a very vague question. My year 10 daughter would have written a very poor English story aged 11, but managed level 5 at KS2 and level 7 at KS3. She's definitely a Maths and Science person.

Even now, my year 6 daughter would produce something much better than her older sister, indeed she always has a story on the go on the computer; but she has been assessed as being gifted at English.

Just because someone is at a "top school" doesn't mean that their particular strength is in story writing. Their gifts could be elsewhere.

And sorry, no. I won't ask my daughter to give away her stories. They are intensely personal to her, and even at 11 she is aware of their shortcomings and wouldn't want them to be broadcast.
