In our English lessons this week, we have been developing our descriptive writing. We watched a short film taken from ‘The Literacy Shed’, called the ‘The Book of Butterflies’. We then described two main parts of the film; before and after the book was opened. Take a look below to read our descriptions from one of these parts:
In the dull room, the boy is holding a hard book that is as hard as brick. The ugly boy’s face is really wrinkly. The walls are very rubbery and as smooth as clay. The boy is as smiley as Miss Jackson. The boy’s hair is as prickly as a rose tree but is still nice.
The glorious butterflies flapped around the magnificent, vibrant room. The loving boy is as happy and smiley as Maisie. The sparking book created magical butterflies. The boy was very surprised.
