KS3 structure skills - comparing opening and ending Black Beauty

Then reading the opening and closing chapter together, enables teachers to discuss some of the structural terms that will be needed for AQA 8700/1 Q3 at GCSE. The activity is designed so students can create a paragraph of analysis as well as complete DIRT activities and retry the activity after looking at model answers.
