Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 4: WRITING The learner is able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

Assessment Standard

We know this when the learner:

4.1 writes different kinds of texts for different purposes and audience:

4.1.1 writes for personal, exploratory, playful, imaginative and creative purpose (e.g. letters, descriptive paragraphs, limericks).

4.1.4 converts information from one form into another (e.g. written text into tables).

4.4 applies knowledge of language at various levels:

4.4.3 paragraph level:

uses topic and supporting sentences to develop a coherent paragraph,

uses appropriate grammar, spelling and punctuation.

LEARNING OUTCOME 6: LANGUAGE STRUCTURE AND USE The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language and interpret texts.

Assessment Standard

We know this when the learner:

6.2 works with sentences:

6.2.5 identifies and uses nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions.

SIMON’S DREAM

Simon was resting in the shade of a leafy willow tree on their lawn, one sunny afternoon. Simon heard someone sighing, but when he looked around, no one was visible.

He heard the ‘sigh’ again, and this time he sat up. To his amazement he saw a little goblin perched on a rosebush nearby. The little chap looked so miserable that Simon asked him what was wrong.

“Oh!” mumbled the goblin, “our king is very sad because his only daughter, the princess Meredith, is ill. She needs some hair from a brown and white dog’s tail to cure her.”

“I am able to help,” said Simon. “I’ll fetch Webster for you now. You may cut / take the hair from his tail.”

“Thank you,” said the goblin gratefully .

“Time is of the essence. A wicked fairy has cast a spell over our princess. If she does not receive the hair before the sun sets, she will surely die!”

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
