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!

Interesting Sentences By 3/4W! Post by – Dhriti and Georgie

For the past few weeks 3/4W students have been editing boring sentences to make them into interesting sentences. We learnt a lot of different ways to make our sentences interesting. We started off by brainstorming some interesting words, nouns, verbs and adjectives. Then we looked at a picture and decided which words are adjectives, nouns and verbs that are appropriate to the picture. Afterwards  we put them into sentences using conjunctions and interesting words to extend the sentence and make them much more exciting.

Here are some examples:

Pick a sentence someone wrote. What did you like about it and why? Can you please write us a boring sentence and turn it into an interesting sentence?
