Beach Description Writing

WALT: to include descriptive detail in our writing.


We wrote a paragraph describing our favourite beach, using tips from our Success Criteria to transport the reader.

Success Criteria

  1. Use descriptive (specific) vocabulary that suit the style of writing.
  2. Use language features like personification, metaphors etc
  3. Exaggerate
  4. Use a variety of senses.
