Writing clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting the language and style for the audience, context and purpose

For example, students could write about where rubbish goes/where it should go, written from the perspective of a garbage collector or a piece of garbage making its way through the waste cycle. Another way students could write about this topic is from an emotional perspective. For example, “down in the dumps” could reflect feelings of disillusionment with their immediate environment, neighbourhood, city, or the world.  Word count – 500 words

Afgelopen vrijdag hebben de leerlingen gegriezeld en genoten  tijdens de SDS griezelfilmavond.

Sommige leerlingen hebben er zelfs nachtmerries van gehad, zo griezelig!
