The Tasman Tempest

Room 9 are learning about descriptive writing. 
We are exploring how to use precise verbs, adjectives, adverbs and similes to create a clear picture in the readers mind.
This week we decided to write about the heavy rain that hit Auckland over the weekend- The Tasman Tempest.

Here are some of our descriptions.

The Tasman Tempest by Leroy

Zap! ZZZZ! Thunder! My window was barricaded by the lashing rain. 
People were scuttling like hunted foxes. Cars drove as fast as peregrine falcons. I was terrified that some places were flooded. Drip, a raindrop slid like a little sea snake down my window. 

The Tasman Tempest by Jason

The dark grey clouds flew above me. The lightning grumbled like a tiger trying to get me. The rain splatted on the road, the green grass, houses, people scuttled to their homes. The southerly winds blew across the country.
