Editing our own writing

In Year 5, we have been practising editing our work. First we proof-read which is where we check for spelling and punctuation errors and then we change words and sentences to enhance the meaning of the text. Using a purple pen, we make our corrections above where we have written. We do this by ourselves and then with our partner. Once completed, we are then able to redraft our work to create a perfect, final piece, which we can be proud of!
