This week, we have been developing our descriptive writing, with both Skellig and paintings from the National Gallery being our stimulus. We have included techniques such as: similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, alliteration, idioms and personification. We have been learning words and their definitions from the Year 5 and 6 spelling list, which we have included in our writing. Next week, we will continue to work on our descriptions, included expanded noun phrases.
Challenge: Can you explain to your parents, what an idiom is and I wonder how many you can think of and use over the weekend?
