Over the next 3 days, you will work towards creating a piece of work. By Friday, you will have written a description on one of the following pictures:

 

 

Here is timetable for the week:

 

Wednesday: Plan your writing by brainstorming vocabulary, phrases, similes, metaphors, personification

 

Today, we expect at least 15-20 phrases / words/ sentences to go with your picture. 

 

Things to think about: 

 

What can you see?  Cottage – trees – pathway - smoke- castle- bats - clouds - moon

             Colours – light – dark -

What can you hear? Trees – sound of the forest – footsteps?- wind- rain

 

What can you smell? Smoke – grass – forest

 

How does this make you feel? Happy – sad – courageous – anxious – determined

                                                curious – puzzled – apprehension -inquisitive

 

If you get stuck, try writing a basic word / phrase / sentence and then seen if you can up-level it. For example: 

 

Basic Up-levelled 
Smoke came out the chimney.  Delicate smoke danced out of the chimney.  
There was a large tree. Next to the cottage, stood an ancient tree which towered over the house. 
There were faeries in the grass.  Amongst the dancing flowers, were tiny faeries, who spent their time collecting nectar. 

 

Send us your mind maps so that we can post them on Thursday's English page. That way, you can magpie each other's ideas.
