TY Work Portfolio 4

Oli Smith's version of 'My First Home' starts :

"My first home was beautiful. I was only eight months old and I had just moved from Australia. My parents borrowed a bit of money and we settled down in our big house on the top of a hill overlooking the beautiful French village of Montelimar. The town is known for its manufacture of nougat, a French sweet, so as you drove into the village that lovely sweet smell would hit you."

Read the full piece here.

One of the narrative tasks in the Work Portfolio is to tell a story from two different perspectives. Here is Rosemary Wentges's piece. Another popular title is 'My First Love' - rarely anything conventionally romantic, and an example is Rebecca Roe's memory here.
