This week we are going to try the second text titled 'Cowboys'.  Give it a go and make sure you use the Mark Scheme to check how well you do. 

Writing Task

I would like you this week to find an image using the internet of a setting that you find interesting.  It could be somewhere you have been before, a futuristic setting, a fantasy setting, a game setting, anywhere you like.  From this, I want you to plan and write a short story about something which takes place in that setting.


I want you to use the following success criteria when writing your story.
