Final virtual assembly of the year for Thursday 23rd July in Class Pages

Week 1 20/4/20 - 24/4/20

Firstly, I would like to tell you about a useful resource that has been produced by Barefoot Computing:

"With just one click (and no need for logins), parents/carers can continue to build their child’s computing skills in an enjoyable and accessible way -  through popular lessons made into easy activities, fun ‘mini missions’ and interactive online games!"

It can be accessed here:

English

This week I would like you to find a rock (or if you can't go out into the garden, find a picture of a rock).

Draw and describe your rock. What adjectives (describing words) could you use to describe your rock?

 

Try to write a sentence about your rock that uses each of your senses:

My rock feels...

My rock looks...

My rock smells...

My rock sounds... (tricky, but not impossible...)

My rock tastes... (this one is optional!)

 

Can you write a sentence about your rock that uses alliteration (where words begin with the same sounds)? An example of this would be a 'beautifully brown rock'.

 

Can you write a rhyming sentence (or two sentences that go together in a couplet) about your rock? Here is a rhyming couplet:

My fingers clawed the rock from the dirt. Those knife sharp edges on it really hurt!

 

Can you write some similes, comparing your rock to other things? Similes use 'as' or 'like'. For example:

My rock is as heavy as...

as light as...

as round as...

as smooth as...

as rough as...

as tough as...

as big as...

as small as...

as hot as...

as cold as...

 

Can you write some metaphors about your rock? Metaphors compare two different things that are related in some way. Metaphors are similar to similes but they do not use 'like' or 'as'. An example of a metaphor would be:

My rock is a cold, black dragon's eye, dark and mysterious.

 

Finally, can you use all these creative ideas to write a poem about your rock?
