LO: To improve a piece of writing
We are going to carry on editing our poems today. Yesterday, you added some well-chosen adjectives to your poem to extend it. Today, we will find out two other ways to extend our poems and then learn something new! #exciting!
Take out your poem from yesterday and a pencil or pen and...
Activity 9b: Add in a character:
This could be you, or someone else, such as: I, she, he, they, Joseph, the boy, someone, or even 'it'. Because you now have a character, you will also need a verb telling the reader what the character is doing. Let's look at yesterday's example again and then add a character and a verb.
Eg: The city of silence
The forgotten city of frozen silence
He wandered through the forgotten city of frozen silence.
Now, try adding a character and verbs to each of your ideas from yesterday.
Activity 9c: What is it like in your place?
Now, we are going to tell the reader what it is like in your place.
Eg: He wandered through the forgotten city of frozen silence.
He wandered thoughtfully through the forgotten city of frozen silence,
staring at the empty streets, abandoned shops and darkened doorways.
Now, add some of your own detail about what is in your place, what it's like there and what could happen there.
NOW, ARE YOU READY FOR SOMETHING NEW? It's a great word...here it is... juxtaposition!
Activity 10: Try some juxtaposition
Juxtaposition means having two opposite ideas next to each other. This can surprise the reader as they might not be expecting it, or might have never heard the idea before. 'The City of Silence' is an example of juxtaposition, because a city is not normally silent. Here are some other examples:
The sun of darkness
The black hole of light
The cave of dreams
The waterfall of pain
The prison of safety
Now, have a go at making up some of your own juxtapositions.
POETRY TIP: Don't make poems rhyme, as rhyming poems often sound less powerful and will have a different effect upon the reader.
Email me photos or documents of your latest work! I'd love to see the progress!
Year 5/6 Maths
LO: To use line graphs to solve problems
Today, you will be looking at some line graphs to answer some questions. The questions do get trickier the further you work through the sheet, but see how many you can manage. Watch the video, have a go at the questions and then mark your work. :)
Year 6 Maths
LO: To compare and convert miles and kilometres
Yesterday, we were learning about the measurements of mm, cm, m, Km, ml, L, g and Kg. These are all examples of 'metric' measurements and we most often work with these units of measurement at school and elsewhere.
However, in this country, we sometimes use the 'imperial' measurements of 'miles', 'pounds', 'stone' or 'gallons', but what are these different units of measurement for, and why do we seem to have two different ways of measuring?
Now, watch the video and have a go at the questions on the sheet.
Mark your work.
