This Revision Bite will give you practice in writing Gaelic. In this subsection, we’ll look at questions where you are asked to write about your School.


You may be asked a question about School.

Write about your school for a pen friend in Canada.

You may include the following details:

  • information about your school, and where it is situated

  • how you travel there in the morning

  • what subjects you take

  • what other activities you take part in at school

  • anything else you want to include

A good piece of writing should contain roughly seven paragraphs. A good rule of thumb is to include one (or two) of the details suggested in the question as individual paragraphs.

Your paragraphs may follow the details suggested. For example:

  • Paragraph 1 can cover the first bullet point information about your school and where it is situated.

  • Paragraph 2 can cover how you travel to school in the morning.

  • Paragraph 3 can contain information about what subjects you take.

  • Paragraph 4 can contain information about what other activities you take part in at school.

  • Paragraph 5 can cover anything else you may wish to include or it can be your closing paragraph.

Make sure that you have an interesting beginning to your piece. It is always good to grab the reader’s attention at the beginning of a piece. You mustn’t forget to end well either. Your reader should feel that you have finished saying what you have to say.
