Creative Writing Task -
Last week you wrote your own poem based on the poem 'In the Land of the Flibbertigibbets'. This week we would like you to use your poems from last week to create a character description of one of the characters from the poem or one character you created yourself. Check out the power point and the WAGOLL (what a good one looks like) below to give you some ideas. Please remember that good character descriptions must include adjectives. You can challenge yourself by including 2A sentences, similes and exclamation sentences! I've added some success criteria like we use in the classroom for you to check you've included all the important skills.
You can send your work back to the teachers by logging into Google Classrooms with your child's HWB login.
As usual please continue to read at home with your child. BugClub reading books are available online and teachers can monitor usage and update when new books need issuing.
Well done to those of you continuing to use BugClub to access your Abacus maths tasks. I've also uploaded the Homework Sheet & Problem Solving tasks to Google Classroom so you won't need to print them, you can add your answers digitally if this is easier.
