    Writing postcards

    What's the name of these flowers? (last week's answer: scribbly bark gum tree)
    Writing postcards is something we usually do when we are on a holiday trip. We write about the places we visit, their people and their food. We talk about things we've done.We use contractions and punctuation markers, such as exclamation marks, underlining (for emphasis) to sound as if we were talking (colloquial language). Last Thursday we went on an excursion to the Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout.


    • Write a postcard to a friend about the pylon excursion.
      If you didn't go on the excursion, you can listen to Mirella's podcast, Liz's podcast or Lizbeth's podcast (below) and write a postcard as if you were one of them. You can use some of the language they use to describe the places they visited. Remember it is a postcard, so it doesn't have to be very long. You can read some examples from last year's students here: Silvia's postcard, Jie's postcard and Jessica's postcard.

      • Listen to Lisbeth Podcast and do the 3 worksheets (you can print them to write the answers more easlily)
      • Don't forget to listen to your podcast in Let's Talk!
      • Later on today, Marion's class will come and we will learn how to create a photostory.

      The name of that flower is Lilly. There are many different kinds of lillies, this is the white lilly and it smells very nice.
