In English we have been writing to entertain and make the reader nervous. We are planning to write a descriptive piece set on a battle field using our knowledge from history.
We have looked at the ingredients of a successful battle scene: using negative vocabulary, imagery (metaphors and personification), short sentences to build suspense, describing senses and having the weather reflect the mood.
Some of us have chosen to write from the perspective of the moon or a horse, observing the destruction from afar.
We have written short bursts of creative writing to practice after watching videos of re-enacted battle scenes.
