Use simile, metaphor, alliteration to enhance your description. Think about the extract we read from Jon McGregor's book "If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things."
For homework, please can you type up your description ready to share with the rest of the class.

Hi Guys. This isn't homework but at some point, in school this week, could you come onto the blog and add your comments about what you did for World Peace Day and why you chose to do it. Asante Sana.
Welcome to our new Grade 5M blog! Blogging gives us a great opportunity to share our ideas. Having you contributing to this blog includes many things, but right now I would like to focus on commenting.
Commenting allows for feedback and conversation on a blog. It allows for students to present ideas, and for other students to contribute to those ideas and to build upon them.
But for this to happen, we must come up with a set of agreements for commenting on a blog. What agreements do you believe need to be in place if we are to have an effective blog and comment section (or, what rules should we have for comments)? Answer in the comment section below!
