Using precise vocabulary

We've been exploring the use of precise vocabulary to make our writing more detailed and interesting. Flicking through junk mail, we found and cut out samples of colours such as olive, mauve, scarlet, beige and crimson.

After inspiration from this video of my (well, actually Mr Wilson's) marine tank and using their imagination, the class drew a fish. Next they are going to write fabulous sentences with their new colour words.

When the video starts playing, ask Mum or Dad to show you how to shut down the advert by clicking on the white circle with the cross. Never click on the hyperlink in an advertisement.

  1. Wow! I noticed a couple of new additions in your tank Mrs. Wilson! Such a cool tank! Love, love, love the pictures of the fish, who wouldn't find inspiration from that tank!
