Asalha Puja Day

Asalha Puja Day is a Buddhist festival that occurs on the full moon of the eighth lunar month, which is usually in July. The festival pays homage to the Buddha and commemorates the Buddha's first sermon and the founding of the Buddha's Sangha - four noble truths. The day is observed by donating offerings to temples and listening to sermons.

Descriptive Writing

 

 In 4/5M we have been looking at how to develop description of a setting from a given list. We discussed what extra information would be good to include so that the image painted for the reader would be more vivid.  We also considered our use of relative clauses, parentheses, similes and metaphors. 

 

We used an extract from 'The Boy in the Tower' by Polly Ho-Yen as inspiration.
