LO: Can I edit and improve my writing?

When we write longer pieces of work we finish at different rates – don’t worry this is to be expected. The video below talks you through how to end your story and what to look for when editing.

Take the afternoons to publish and ensure you do your best job. I have also included all the whole adventure power point if you need to go back and relook at something.
