My DD is 8.6 and at school in France, primarily in French though it is a bilingual French-English school. Moderated evaluation and assessment for English is not on offer. This is a piece of writing she did on her own for fun during the holidays. I would be really grateful for feedback as to NC level. It is "as is".
The Golden orb
Long ago in a little town called Bethlehem lived a little girl named Susan who was very kind and gentle, although her cat Tabby was always a bit agressive, so on weekends like this one she want to find a nice orb for Tabby to play with she looked and looked until there it was the nicest orb Susan had ever seen was just under her nose. A nice golden orb was waiting for her to come. Oh what a nice golden orb. Tabby will love this! she cried and bought it. Would you like it raped up young lady said the sales man. Its free. OK said Susan with a smile. And she went back home. When she gave her present to Tabby, he was not just only happy, he was astonished. All these years Tabby thought Susan hated him, but no. He loved his new toy and now days Susan and Tabby would play hide and seek with it. But one morning Tabby could not find his golden orb anywhere. Where is it? Tabby asked himself. He went to see next door and what could he see? The next door cat had stolen his golden orb!!! Thats mine! That golden orb is mine! No its mine. Said a little voice. Oh! That! Thats yours. I found it here and Well, it is mine, give it to me! so Tabby went back home with his golden orb. I have it back forever! he said to himself (he actually was proud of himself).
