They will write them on the beaches . . .

Following a delay caused by the recent Alert Level 4 lockdown, a large group of Taieri College year 7 pupils finally went on an English writing trip to some Dunedin landmarks yesterday.

Teacher Kirsty Black said they visited the Botanic Garden, the Octagon and St Kilda Beach.

"Basically, we used the settings to inspire, motivate and prompt ideas for writing.

"We chose those places because they were three different public locations where you can get different descriptions related to the senses, personification and similes."

The pupils would now create a descriptive scene or setting for a storyline, she said.
