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:
|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.|
