As we mentioned, in English, we are writing multi-sensory descriptions of the rainforest.
The children have all been trying really hard to include alliteration, modal verbs, adverbs, expanded noun phrases and similes in their writing.
We thought that you might like to read a little ‘snippet’ of our writing so far… hope you enjoy it!
Owen: The smell of the rainforest was fragrant, pungent and perfumed.
Chloe: Quickly, I dragged myself across the mud that was clinging to me like glue. Horrified, I thought about what I would look like when I came out. Would I ever come out?
Zane: It was a tiger! It’s fur was like a baggy jumper hanging. It’s teeth were as sharp a the blade of a knife as it hunted through the Amazon rainforest.
Ruby: I wondered how on earth I had managed to be in this situation. Would I possibly find my way out of here? I clung onto the howdah like a parrot on a tree. Birds whistled. I scraped around the hard howdah trying to find the comfiest spot. I caught a glimpse of a perilous predator prancing through the long, busy foliage.
Elliott: Quickly, the rampaging elephant made her way through the deep jungle. I lay there, in the howdah, trying restlessly to get to sleep. Would I ever return to the warm – and probably empty – beach?
Joshua: Intermittently, the pouncing rain grasped the rainforest and started to soak the forest. In the howdah, soaked, I felt like the new James Bond trying to think of an inventive plan to get out of the raging rain. Could I possibly get out of the rainforest alive?
Jake also wrote some amazing sentences in class today and we all couldn’t help but be impressed! Well done Jake – what a superstar!
