Ella's setting description
Ella has been chosen to be a Star Writer!
We think her description of The Highwayman Setting is outstanding! We like how she used personification saying the stars danced and the trees waved. Additionally, we liked how Ella included a metaphors to describe the road and the moon in the sky. She has used a semi-colon correctly and used a simile to describe the trees. She even opened her sentence with the simile making it complex. We like Ella's use of parenthesis in the last sentence.
Well done Ella!

Tuesday Toad Invasion
It was an ordinary Tuesday; most of the town residents were peacefully sleeping in their homes. Suddenly, gargantuan, repugnant toads began to soar over the neighbourhood. Hovering on soggy lily-pads, the terrible toads terrorised the town! Green slime dripped and oozed from the creatures speckled skin.

We liked how Elicia extended her sentences into complex sentences making them more powerful. We think she has used fantastic vocabulary and she even included a simile! We especially liked how Elicia opened her sentences in different and exciting ways, our favourite opener is 'Without Warning...'
Well done Elicica!

This week Home 5 have chosen Zak as our star writer! We really liked his diary recount in role as a servant witnessing Macbeth murder King Duncan! We especially liked how he used a simile to compare the wind to a howling wolf, we thought this added some super description. We also liked some of his vocabulary choices including polished dagger, blood-washed dagger and the word despair! Additionally, we thought Zak was really clever hinting at a problem in his opening paragraph to draw the reader in and grab their attention.
Well done Zak!
