Choosing the right word is so important, there are so many ways you can say that the water is blue, have you heard the word azure? What kind of picture does it paint for you?
Working individually and using our oral language with our partners and groups we have built some great lists of words that really describe our swimming experience. We've used these lists to create descriptive sentences that caption some of our photos. It's hard work deciding on the BEST word to use and we spent lots of time trying different word combinations, adding and deleting words to really make sure what we wrote is what we wanted to write.
We thought we'd post this blog today as we are really missing swimming, the rain has meant that we haven't been in two days but we can remember it and put ourselves there by reading our writing, what great authors we are!

Can you see what we are working on?
Do you have any suggestions for words that we could use in our writing? Leave us a comment we love to read them.
