Literacy in Ash
We need to continue reading our text and exploring the language used. This week Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay finally make their attempt to conquer Mount Everest. We will be using all our senses to imagine how they would have been feeling and will be writing a description. The main focus will be to use powerful adjectives and verbs to add excitement and depth to our writing. Alongside this, we will be revisiting previous years objectives by using a range of adverbs, conjunctions and prepositions.
