This week for writing Maia's groups decided that with the Olympics on, we would write about topics to do with sports.
We looked at two different types of writing; a poem and a story.
After reading we identified the common features the writers used.
-the writers both used short sentences and lists deliberately.
-the writers both used strong verbs to help tell their message which created a strong image in our minds.
-they wrote only what was necessary to "paint the picture".
When we are writing this week we are going to practice using these techniques to improve our writing.
Here is a poem Laurens wrote today:
Grasp the bow tightly
Aim at the bulls-eye
Focus on the target
Pull back the string- taunt, tight, strong
