Alex, you have done some great work on your diary entry. You have constructed a diary entry that is
contains three events from the past, highlights your characters lifestyle and some research. Although, I
think with a bit more research you would be able to create a diary entry that contains events that show
more understanding and knowledge of the life of a first settler. But, I do like the way you have related to
your settler, their family and what they have to do in order to survive the first six months of settlement.

Overall, I think with more development in your sequential writing skills, spelling, your understanding of
events and the difference between the past and present, you will be able to improve your Humanities and
Social Sciences skills.

I look forward to seeing your growth in Humanities and Social Sciences in the near future!

Best wishes,

Miss Durnin
