Literacy – Adjectives and prepositions

Adjectives and prepositions can make our writing more interesting to readers but also help them to gain a better understanding of a place which is being described. For example;

There was a book.

There was an old, tattered book.

On the ancient table, there was an old, tattered book.

The more information you add, the more interesting the sentence becomes – within reason!  

Using the information in the texts you have looked at in the lesson, use prepositions and adjectives to describe an animal’s habitat.
