Term 4, Week 2: Setting

Learning Intention: 

  • Describe a setting.
  • Write sentences that start with a capital letter, have finger spaces between words, and end with a full stop.

Using the picture above or a place that you have drawn, write at least 3 sentences describing the setting in your Writing Journals. Remember to use lots of adjectives, and try to sound out the words on your own. Here are some examples:

  • There were lots of cars in the busy city. It was very noisy and smelly.
  • The sun was shining brightly at the beach. It was a beautiful day.
  • Look at the deep, dark forest. It is cold and scary.

Please wait until we have covered this lesson in our Webex sessions before completing the task. Also, don’t forget to send your teacher a photo of your work by Friday!
