Striving for Excellence in a happy,secure and Christian environment

Week Beginning: 07.12.20

Monday English - Today we are going to plan an effective setting description. Go into your garden or an outside space. Stand still for 5 minutes and think about what you can see, hear, smell and feel. As it is winter this will be very different from the garden in our story. Use the same categories to compare what the garden from The Thistle Princess would be like. Think about what would be the same and what would be different. 

Tuesday English - Today we are going to use our plan from yesterday to write an effective setting description paragraph. Remember to use expanded noun phrases and avoid starting each sentence with ‘I can see...’ ‘I can hear...’ How else can you let someone know what you are seeing or hearing?

Wednesday English - Read the poem at the bottom of this page. What do you like about it? What image does it conjure in your head? How has the author used certain words to create this image?

Thursday English - Go through the similes PowerPoint at the bottom of the page. Use what you have learned to generate similes for The Thistle Princess. You could use some of these similes in your final poem. 

Friday English -  Using the first verse of the poem as a guide and the similes you made yesterday, have a go at re-writing the poem using ideas from The Thistle Princess. This could be used in your final poem.
