Today I would like you to design a futuristic weapon or gadget that the main character could have, or describe a collection of them. We saw in the tunnel chase scene he threw a weapon or gadget back to the gyrocopter following him. Draw on your experience of spy books like Alex Rider to create and describe that weapon. I would like to see expanded noun phrases in the description.
Within the cylinder, was a fast-shooting, precise taser dart.
I would like to see a colon used to add an explaining clause.
The weapons were discretely hidden inside his utility belt: each had a designated place in the belt, ready for quick selection.
Now, it is your turn to write about the weapons and gadgets the character could have, challenge yourself to use a colon and expanded noun phrase.
Today we are going to think about your transition to your different secondary schools. I would like you to start preparing yourself. Log on to Purplemash and open your 2DO. Read a the information about a girl who started secondary school by clicking on more when you launch the 2DO. Then use the tabs by the writing tasks to consider your worries and the positives of starting your secondary schools. I look forward to reading your responses.
