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.

Main Points

Self Assessment
Low                                         High
1           2           3           4           5

My speech was organised logically into paragraphs, with an effective introduction and a conclusion.

I used some gestures, stood still and made eye contact with my audience.

My voice was clear and loud.  I didn’t speak too quickly or too slowly.
My speech had a message and was original, interesting and relevant to the audience.

I used ‘powerful’ words in my speech.  I also included some language features (eg repetition, alliteration, similes etc)

My speech was between 2 ½ and 3 ½ minutes long.


Next time I need to …

My goal is to not wiggle like a jelly and to make it have more scenes.

Teacher Comment
Kenisha you had a creative start to your speech, you really got our attention. Well done.
