Overboard - November 2020

For our second piece of descriptive writing, Year 5 were tasked with completing a first person recount of a character, from our class novel - Kensuke's Kingdom, who fell overboard from his family's yacht.  To succeed, the children used skills taught to enhance description and add detail.

At the start of the year, Year 5 were tasked with writing a descriptive piece after watching a short animation, based on the book Tuesday, by David Wiesner.  Our focus was to enhance description using adverbs, adjectives and varying sentence openers.
