Goal: To use personification
Put these three words into a correctly punctuated sentence.
Fox House Snow
Example- Suddenly, the beady eyed fox walked mysteriously through the snow towards the brightness of the house.
Look through the PowerPoint about figurative language. You may recognise some of the features on the PowerPoint. Today, we are looking at personification. You should use the PowerPoint and BBC Bitesize to support you with your learning of personification. Then, complete the activity sheet. You can choose which sheet you would like to do. 1 star- Easiest 3 stars- Hardest.
Goal: To draw a setting from a description.
Listen to the setting description below. As I am reading the description to you, you should try and draw what I am describing. You must draw exactly what I tell you to. Once you have finished, label what you have drawn. Compare the description to your drawing. Did you include everything? You can colour the setting in.
Goal: To write a setting description
Warm up-Word Chains
How long can you make your word chain? Start with the word ‘plane.’ Start the next word with the last letter of the word that came before.
Can you start your word with the last 2 letters from the word that came before?
Have a look at BBC Bitesize and complete the activity (the link is below).
When we are writing setting descriptions we need to include; what we can see, what we can hear, what we can smell, what we can taste and what we can touch. Look at the different images and choose one to write a short setting description for. If you do not like any of the settings you can choose one of your own. As well as including senses, try to include some of the figurative language that we have been looking at (similes, metaphors, adjectives, personification).
This is a short example of an island being taken over by a storm- As the storm came closer to the paradise island the tall, towering trees began to sing. The wet, sticky sand was carried away by the cries of the dangerous storm. They sky grew darker and the raging water started to climb over the island. In the distance, a small boat was being carelessly tossed around by the rough, rapid sea.
You can either listen to me read the sentences on the video below or ask a grown up to read the sentences to you. You must write the sentences down and try to spell all of the words correctly. Each sentence has a year 3/ 4 spelling word in it. Remember to use the correct punctuation as well. After, you can mark your work.
