Waves crash against the water surface as it makes the sand damp. Bushy trees tower over the sand creating shade for the hungry seagulls. The cove sits proudly among cliff. The horizon stretches its arms out to the vast expanse of the sand and water. In the distance there are wee islands that meander up and down.
The smell of salt water gushed through my nostrils. Rotting shellfish form a ghastly reek which overtakes the fresh smell of the grass. The scent of the sunscreen makes me cringe as it disgustingly pours down my body. The smell of luscious fish and chips makes my body tingle with excitement.
A calm breeze blows sand all over the beach effortlessly. The gust of wind makes the trees sway side to side. A wave of water squeezed between my toes to meet the dry sand and then retreats back to the ocean ferociously. Warmth from the sun radiates the rocks and sand on the beach.
There is absolutely nothing better than relaxing at the beach and feeling the sand beneath my feet. Once we arrive to the beach I’m always saying “ When can we go swimming?”, or “Why does it take so long to unpack?”. I love the beach. What do you think?
This week we have been writing descriptions. In my writing I think I did a good job of using different vocabulary.

This term we have been learning about fair trade and how it helped farmers get a fair price, so we made posters for consumers to buy fair trade products. I think fair trade has helped the poor farmers to meet their basic needs because they are now getting a fair price.

Once upon a time there lived a young girl with a kind heart. Her name was Cinderella. As time passed her mother died and her father married again. He married a wicked step mother along with her cruel daughters. They wouldn’t treat Cinderella kindly. Every time they would go to special occasions, they would leave Cinderella in charge of all the housework. She would mop the floor, tidy the rooms, do the dishes and whenever she got tired she sat in front of the warm fire place.
One day a letter from the Prince arrived to their doorstep. It was an invitation to the royal dance ball. Cinderella really wanted to go but of course her evil stepmother wouldn’t let her. As she disappointedly said goodbye, a flash of light shone into Cinderella's face. It was her mother! “ What are you doing here mother?” ,asked Cinderella.
“ I am here to tell you that you can go to the ball” explained her mother. Cinderella looked down at her torn up rags she was wearing.
” How am I supposed to go to the ball when I’m wearing rags?”
“ I can help you with that”, her mother said. Cinderella stood very still as her mother conjured a spell.
“ I'll make you get a dress, and change the pumpkin into a carriage.” Everything had changed. Even the six donkeys were changed into beautiful white horses. She felt the glass shoes on her feet move with her. “You must come back when the clock chimes 12. Then the magic will be gone.”
“Ok mother,” replied Cinderella.
Cinderella rode to the ball in her pumpkin carriage. When Cinderella arrived her stepmother and stepsisters didn't even recognise her! Once it was Cinderella's turn to dance with the prince, he soon fell in love with her beauty and her smile. Cinderella also felt the same with the prince. The prince was strong and handsome. Cinderella didn't notice how long she'd been dancing. She got nervous that the clock had chimed 12 already. “Phew. It's only 11:30,” Cinderella mumbled to herself. Soon all the gentlemen wanted to marry Cinderella, but Cinderella knew that she couldn't marry anyone she hasn't met yet. Finally the prince decided to marry Cinderella and nobody heard of of the evil stepmother and stepsisters ever again. Cinderella and the prince lived happily ever after.
This week we have been writing narratives and had to change the ending. I changed my ending by instead of the clock chiming 12, Cinderella and the prince married and lived happily ever after.
