Descriptive Writing

This term, 3/4W has been focusing on creating descriptive writing pieces. We have worked hard to upgrade our vocabulary, include similes and metaphors to create a picture in our reader’s head. As a class, we have eaten an Oreo and then written about this experience and we have also ‘visited’ a rain forest!

Here is an image

What have you learnt about descriptive writing? Can you write a descriptive sentence based on the image above? 

Welcome to Term 4!

Hi there 3/4W,

Welcome back to a very exciting term! There are so many activities planned this term including:

  • Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony
  • Transition
  • Show day
  • Stomp
  • Years 3-6 Concert

Over the holidays I went to Beijing, China. I visited Tiananmen Square, some Hu Tongs (old laneways) and Tsinghua University. I had a great time visiting my cousin and uncle.

What are you looking forward to this term? What was a holiday highlight?

 

Ready, Set, Go for Term 4!

Dear 3/4W,

I hope you had a wonderful break! I had a very enjoyable break – I went to the Blue Mountains in Katoomba (a two hour train ride from Sydney). I went on a couple of hikes and visited some amazing sites including ‘The Three Sisters’ ‘Ruined Castle’ and the Jenolan caves. Here are some photos from my trip:

We have some great things to look forward to this term including our unit called ‘Looking back – Looking forward’, Dance Drama, probability and measurement in maths and how to use precise words and phrases in writing.

What was your holiday highlight? What are you looking forward to this term?
