This is a description of our school through Olivia’s eyes. Can you draw our school from this description?
Close your eyes. Imagine. Our school is about to be put together in your mind, that’s right, every detail, every individual thing, so listen carefully.
Firstly, the roof is made from shimmering silver slates with rose red drain pipes running around the edge of the roof. A colossal stained glass window is centred in the middle of the triangular building made out of bricks, the colours of burgundy, brown and chocolate.
The concrete steps are placed on the right hand side of the school, on the left hand side there is four rows of ramps going in a zig zag sort of shape, they have red, rusty railings attached to them. As you approach the school you will see a big sign with Ysgol San Sior painted on it in white with a piercing blue background. Just underneath are two double doors, both made from oak wood and transparent glass. Posters are hung up on the doors informing you on the school events. Sitting still above the sign is a gargantuan chicken, but don’t worry it’s made from wood.
Two glass windows are placed either side of the doors. On the left hand side of the doors we have our year 6 classroom, again with a detailed grey slated roof , it is also a triangular shape. Next to the classroom is 10 honeycomb shaped things made from wood each one filled with small, cut up tree trunks.
To the left of the stain glass window there is a small black box which is called a digital clock, numbers are on the clock in red.
Then, once your drawing is complete you should hopefully now have a good idea of what Ysgol San Sior looks like right in front of you.
Thank you for taking the time to read my work.
Olivia, Ysgol San Sior, Yr 6
If you close your eyes, can you imagine what our school looks like?
Our School is a very unusual shape. Leading up to the main doors on the right are steps and then next to them are ramps which go in a zig-zag and have red railings. After you’ve climbed the steps and gone left there are double glass doors. Above these doors is a small blue sign which says Ysgol San Sior and the above that is a rectangular stained glass window in the centre.
The roof is a triangle and is covered with grey slate. To the left of the doors are ten wooden hexagon shapes to make it look like honey comb as our school not only has chickens, but also bees. Next to that is a small window.
On the left of that area is a square building, still attached to the main part of the school. That is the year six classroom which has big glass windows.
I wonder if you can picture our school and I can’t wait to see your drawings.
