These four descriptive pieces are listed in Grade 8 of the St Cecilia Examination syllabus.

  1. Gnats – a ticklish number causing an irritating itch!
  2. Fireflies – flitting here and there. A precise but delicate touch is called for.
  3. Spiders – the spider seeks a good spot to spin his web, borne on the breeze as he works.
  4. Bugs – scuttle with purpose about their business.
