Descriptive Writing

 This week in Room five, we have been focusing on descriptive writing. We went on to the literacy shed website and picked a picture to describe. Here is my descriptive writing:


This morning I looked out of my bedroom window to see a beautiful golden sunrise, a sunny blue sky, and a fresh soft layer of white snow. The thick fog makes the field seem even more mystic.
I could hear the bluebirds softly tweet in the bare trees.
When I take each step gently strolling out the front door, I feel the snow crunch softly under my boots. I look back and see my footprints in the snow.
I tilt my head upward and try to spot animals in the fluffy clouds.
My hands feel warm inside my light blue woollen mittens.
I enjoy feeling the cool winter breeze blowing against my body.

Jamaica

This week in room five, we have been researching different countries of our choice. I chose Jamaica because I didn't know much information about it. We all got a plain worksheet to fill out and decorate. On the sheet, we had to write down some important events, the things they celebrate, what sports they play, what they wear and more! This is my worksheet:

Ronald McLean and Keith Hunter

This week in Room 5, we have been focusing on ANZAC day. Mrs Drummond our teacher has a box full of objects that each have the story about the person who owned it. Me and my partner Lucy made a brochure about a stained glass window. It is a story about two best friends who can't see each other because of the war. Here is the pamphlet we made:

The Arctic Wolf

In the past few weeks, we have been researching information about an animal of our choice. I chose the Arctic wolf because I didn't know much about it. We searched up the animal's diet, their habitat, the animal's looks and their babies. Here is my poster:
