Descriptive Writing – The Olympics

4KM and 4KJ have loved learning about the Olympics over the past four weeks.

We have enjoyed reading and researching the Olympic Games but…a picture tells a thousand words!

One of our writing tasks this week involved describing photographs of athletes from the Olympic Games. Using newspaper photos, students had to describe what was happening in the pictures. They had to consider who was in the picture, what they were doing, the background and how the athletes were feeling when the photo was taken.

We hope you enjoy the selection of photographs and our descriptions.

Have you ever taken a really great photo? Can you describe it?
