Granny by Siobhan Kenna
My granny is old and has wrinkles. She always has a smile on her face and also wears red lipstick. She always wears bright colours and a hat with a feather. Her hair is about the colour of sheep’s wool. My granny loves visitors, especially me. When she goes out she always wears her earrings. My granny has a two-storey house and lives with her son Kevin. She has a kind heart. My granny lives on a hill and near the beach. My granny wears a dress that goes with her feather and shoes. My granny has a small garden that has a path in the middle and plants around the outside. It also has a bird feeder. She has blue eyes like the colour of water. I have the best granny.
You have used some good similes and some adjectives in your description to create that picture about your granny but I still need to know a little more about what she looks like.
1. Try to organise your description into paragraphs – what she physically looks like, about her personality/behaviour, and about her environment/belongings.
2. Try to start as many sentences with different words as you can.
