Bay Beach Clean By Chevylee

Bay Beach Clean

On Friday we did a bay beach clean which is when our school goes to the beach and pick up rubbish. We found a lot of cigarettes, bottle caps and glass. We also found plastic spoons, coffee cups, water bottles, cans, coke bottles, paper bags, tissues, lollipop sticks, and pieces of metal and tin. I enjoyed cleaning the beach because we could have left it there and animals could have eaten it and been dead or injured. There was a wide variety of rubbish way more than I expected.

The Tangelo By Chevylee

The Tangelo

The Tangelo was a soft orangy colour and a bumpy oval shape. The Tangelo’s outside smelt strong and sour and felt like a mix of hard and soft. As I peeled my Tangelo I could smell a sweet but strong citrusy smell, I could hear my peelings crackling as they were removed from the Tangelo’s flesh. As I bit into one of the Tangelo’s segments, SQUIRT! All of its juice squirted onto my face. The Tangelo was as sweet as a red, ripe strawberry, and as juicy as a crisp watermelon. The Tangelo was a fruit, full of flavour.

My Reflection
I was learning to write a descriptive piece of writing and choose descriptive words and adjectives. I think I did well in choosing adjectives and onomatopoeia. Next time I think I could do better by adding more detail about the smells of the tangelo. I enjoyed writing descriptively about the tangelo it was fun.
