Yesterday, you analysed a descriptive paragraph written by a writer from a newspaper. He was describing the conditions people were living in, in the city.

Today we are going to write a short descriptive paragraph based on the photograph above. This can then be added to your newspaper report tomorrow.

Task 1: Look at the photograph. Identify 6 things that you could describe in the picture.

Task 2: Add adjectives and figurative language to what you are describing. These are only brief notes and ideas so far.

Task 3: Use your notes and construct a paragraph describing the living conditions in the photograph. Try and extend your ideas and construct detailed sentences using parenthesis. 

Task 4: Share with me on the blog J
