All this week in English we have been looking at how we can make our writing more interesting by using adjectives, adverbs and expounded noun phrases. Ã‚Â These pictures show the children working in groups identifying words and phrases that they felt would contribute to a strong descriptive piece of writing.
Working in the groups and as a guided write the class came up with the following sentences:
1. Suddenly in front of me a huge blackbird was singing sadly and softly.
2. Behind the swishing trees high above me I heard a bird singing happily.
3. Close by I saw a black, soft crow flying proudly against the blustering wind.
4. Suddenly I fell heavily against a long, fat log in the dark, gloomy, damp forest.
Which sentence do you like best? Ã‚Â Why?
