For our writing, we have talked about our sentences needing:
'bare bones' - to build the sentence - the subject/s - the noun/s - the what and the who
'muscles' - to give the action to the sentence - the verbs - the how
'flesh' - to hold it all together and make it look good - the adjectives and adverbs that help add detail - the why, where, when etc
We are aiming to write complex sentences, using adjectival or adverbial phrases, to really push ourselves with our use of precise language and to help the reader with lots of details so they can picture the scene as they are reading.
Watch this space to see our writing turn up in the comments section...we think you will be impressed!
Here is another of his paintings that perhaps shows what was happening before the hurricane struck...'The Gulf Stream'... we can certainly see that the weather and ocean conditions are getting stormy.
This week we are pleased to have two sessions with Theresa and Harold the giraffe in the Community Trust of Southland-sponsored Life Education Trust's truck classroom...yes, it's on a truck!
Our focus is Identity and Self-esteem...how we make choices that have positive or negative consequences, and how those choices determine our reputation and protect our identity.
Today we are talking about our personality characteristics and how some can build a good, positive reputation (how other people think of us) and other characteristics might give us a bad reputation.
We have learned that it is up to us what sort of words, actions, attitudes and behaviour we display to build our own reputation. That also includes what we do online (internet) or with texts and apps like Snapchat - we must always use our devices with integrity and care.
