Today we are going to write a diary entry that describes your house. I want you to describe what your house looks like from the outside and from the inside. How many rooms do you have in your house? What things do you have in each room? How is each room decorated? What kinds of activities do you do in each room?

Read the example below. Highlight the expanded noun phrases and use of adjectives.


Dear diary,

I woke up this morning surrounded by fluffy, pink, sparkly cushions. I sat up and looked around my cluttered, messy bedroom. I could see the large bright faces of my favourite popstars smiling down at me. As I rigorously threw off my heavy, warm duvet, I felt the chill of the cold breeze wafting through my open window. I stepped forward without thinking and suddenly yelped with pain! OWWW!!!! I stood on a the sharp, horn of my colourful, unicorn toy!

Write your own diary entry about what your bedroom or house looks like.
