In the last two weeks we have been working on our writing based on a video. The video we watched is called Marshmallow and it is from the Literacy Shed's fun page! Here are some pictures from the clip. Can you guess what it is about?

We learnt about adjectives and verbs. For example "The slimy green sea monster stalked its prey from a distance."
We also learnt about onomatopoeia - words that make the sound they are. "Splash! He jumped out of the lake and crept up behind his next victim."

We are looking at different ways to post our writing so that more people want to read it. We thought about only showing a hook, or the first paragraph in a slide. Do you have any other suggestions?

If you want to see any of the writing. Please go to the blogs down the right hand side :) Our students would love to see some comments here!
