How do they make you feel? What words do you like? Now write your own preposition poem. Use Slide 6 of the powerpoint to help you.

Read Lesson 4 – Introduction. Before you write your recount, you need to decide how recently or how long ago your concert took place. Did it happen a week ago in 1934 or are you looking back on this event 60 years later as an old and retired Ella? Write a brief introduction that includes the 5 Ws. You should be good at this, having written an introduction for your chronological report on music listening earlier in the term. 


Last week, … 

Yesterday, … 

It was 60 years ago but it feels like yesterday. 


Aim to include the skills we focused on yesterday to add more interest and detail to your introduction:

  • Subordinate conjunctions
