Writing a description

We are practising our science observation skills. Last week we wrote notes about the physical characteristics of the stuffed birds we had in the classroom. This week we used the notes about one bird to write a brief but clear description of that bird. We then had to read that description to someone eslse to see if they could guess which bird we were writing about. 

We learned that we need to write as much about the bird in front of us as we can, 
Writing notes rather than sentences is faster so you can write more
Make the notes more descriptive - eg where the colours on exactly 
Take notes about the patterns on the bird and where they eg. Spots, stripes
