- Introduction - we need to explain who, when, where and possibly why the event occurred.
- Events - we describe the parts of the events in the order they occurred.
- Conclusion - we write a closing statement to bring a close to our recount.
Today, we also tried a new type of art. We used watercolour paints for the first time. They are little circles of dried paint in containers and we needed to wet a brush really well and rub it on the colour we wanted. It colours the water on our brush and we can use it to paint on paper. On Tuesday, we ruled up a grid and wrote the upper case alphabet, one letter in each box (except for I, which shared a box with J). Today, we painted the boxes different colours and we'll be laminating them and using them as desk mats. We discovered that when you use only a little bit of water, the colour is dark, but when we use a lot, the colour is much lighter. We thought it was great fun!
