Animal Poem

My Animal Poem
By: Kenisha
My animal is a tiger.
It’s fur is orange like a orange.
It moves like a mouse when it has found it’s prey.
The tiger's eyes are  black as coal and fierce.
It’s body's like a bolder.
A tiger legs are like my legs but stronger.
Its ears are really tiny
It roars like a bear.

Beach Description


The golden burning sand sprinkles across the beach until it meets the ocean.In the distance there are lonely islands on the horizon. On the sand there are hungry seagulls and lovely seashells that are waiting to be picked.The cove is pitch black and hollow.There are large trees towering over the sand.

The smell of the salty sea spreads across the beach.Shellfish start to rot and cover the lovely smell of the fresh grass.A delicious smell of fish and chips scatter around so quickly.

A gentle breeze welcomes me.The hot abrasive sand is radiated by the burning sun.Cool waves splash against my warm feet,washing the stress away.
I just love the beach! It’s like going to the wave pool for free  and the waves never stop.Tell me what you love about the beach?
 



  
This week we have written a description about the beach.
I think I've really described the beach  in my own words.

Fishing at night is Dangreous



This week my group was reading Night on the Reef. A boy was excited to go with Dad but instead of getting fish they had to go through a lot of danger. So our activity was to make a poster to warn people not to fish at night time.
