Pre School Writing

Every month we have a writing session with our Pre School students.
This week we are revising vocabulary related to toys, and numbers!

Practicing English

Storywriting is a useful tool to help improve our English.

But how do I do that?

I hear you out. There are few things to help you improve your story.

: A Holiday in England.

1. Decide on your characters. I will use my perspective to tell my story!
2. When did this happen? How did it happen? Why, what, who.....so many questions to answer! 
3. Think about a beginning, climax and end.That makes it very interesting
4. Describe as much as you can. The easiest way to do this is by using many adjectives! Ex: surprising, lovely, satisfied, relaxed, scary

Let's try!

Last year, I went to England for a short trip. I stayed at a fancy and cozy hotel.
For dinner, I had a huge and satisfying steak. Next morning, I excitedly explored London.
I sat on the London Eye. It was very high but I did not get scared.
Afterwards, I went shopping for gifts. I had to buy four different gifts, so it took a long time!

Now, how about you give it a go!
Good luck~!


We learned about hummingbirds in Waku Waku lesson.
Hummingbirds are so smart, they can remember each flower they have visited for nectar!
