We are doing an English zoom at 10:30am. Please use the link in the email to take part in this.

Today we are going to do our first piece of writing of the term. This week we will be beginning our new topic which is 'The Romans'. To get us back into the swing of writing, we are going to do a descriptive paragraph. 

Have a look at this picture:



Have a think about:

  • What buildings can you see?
  • What are the people wearing?
  • What are the people doing?
  • What are people selling?
  • What colours are things? Are they bright, are they dull?


Your task:

Write a descriptive paragraph about this picture. Try to aim for at least 7 paragraphs. 

Remember to include:

  • Adjectives
  • Conjunctions (and, but, so, which, because)
  • Prepositions (next to, in front of, behind, opposite...hopefully you remember lots from last week's lesson)
  • Adverbs (those ly words we looked at last week)
  • Capital letters and full stops
  • Start your sentences in different ways
  • Use a/an correctly


Here are some example sentences to help you:

In front of the kerb, there are 2 tired men working hard on the pavement. Interestingly, they are using an iron tool to help them fix the dull, beige pavement. These young men are wearing beige tunics, which are the nearly the same colour as the road they are fixing. 


Please don't mark or correct any of your work  and the end of today's lesson. We are doing an editing lesson tomorrow where you will be given the chance to edit and improve your work.
