GCSE English Coursework Creative writing As a child I would come here all the time, but as time went by I didn't go as often, until eventually I stopped going. Some of my best memories were here with my brothers and friends. I particularly liked the playing fields, where we would play football. Sometimes I would visualise myself playing for Manchester United. On a cold and dark evening, I came back and I looked around; a lot of things had changed. It was as if time was running out: the sand glass having only a few grains of sand left, before time ran out. Nature was dying. The insects and other bugs had died out and all that was left was a barren wasteland. Only the man-made structures stood. The trees and bushes had lost their leaves and all that was left something that looked as though it had been dried up in a desert. The branches had become arms with clawed fingers: sometimes they would deliberately scare the children. The old tree was still there, but it wasn't the way I remembered it. The bark had come off to reveal a sinister smile. A strong gale blew through, brushing my face. It sent a chill down my body. ...read more.


I sat on the bench overlooking the playing fields and remembered playing football here. Sometimes I would play alongside my bothers or my friends, other times I watched my older brothers play, whilst I sat on the grass visualising myself playing for Manchester United. ... The visitors had scored early n the first half and they were trailing one-nil with five minutes remaining. "Come on lads, we can still get a result." Shouted Alex Ferguson on the top of his voice. He was taking a risk, by taking off the central defender and replacing him with the 16-year-old attacker, but the manager knew what he was doing, thought the players. The fans were cheering the players on, but time was ticking away. It was the 90th minute and all of a sudden Manchester United sprung into life. A long ball from Britain's best player was latched onto by the forward, Dwight Yorke, who beat the off-side trap and was suddenly one-on-one with the England Goalkeeper, David Seaman. There was complete silence as the crowd watched and all of a sudden the crowd were roaring as the goal was neatly finished off. The crowd went wild with delight as though the fate of the Premiership title was already decided. "GLORY, GLORY MAN. ...read more.


Children will be at school somewhere ? some will be learning, but others will just be having a laugh and messing about. People will be at work others will be at home. Children in third world countries will be starving because money, which should be going towards health and a better quality of life for the people in third world countries, is going to western countries to pay off debts. There will be famines and droughts in third world countries. Children die of malnutrition and hunger, as there isn't enough aid. And what would General Pinochet, the former Chilean dictator be doing at this moment? In his old age and ill heath, he is now in need of a wheelchair. The frail old man is waiting to stand trial for the atrocities committed during his reign as leader of the military government. Mike Tyson will be returning to the USA demolishing his opponent. He could be at a press conference in the USA, feeling content with his victory. In Chechnya, there are Russian soldiers fighting a guerrilla war against the Chechen rebels. Some of the time they will be fighting: shooting in combat and other times they will be hiding in dugouts at temperatures below freezing. Russian soldiers will be dying and so will Chechen rebels; but both the same, with the same hopes and dreams and same shivering skeletons. GCSE English coursework Eimran Khan - 1- ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

There is some good description in this writing but there is a lack of direction in the overall piece with the reader being left a bit confused. At times the expression becomes unclear and careful proofreading must be carried out.
