Good morning Class 3! I hope you are all doing well! Thankyou for sending in your lovely work – I enjoy seeing what you’ve been up to and how you’ve been tackling your daily activities!
Summer has typed up her fantastic writing about the Mayas, highlighting the conjunctions that she has used – well done!
Zak has also been doing some brilliant writing about the Mayas, as well as challenging himself to try year 4 maths this week – wow!
Today you are going to practise using similes and alliterations to describe a scene of your choice! You may want to just look out of your window and describe what you see, or use a picture from a book that you like!
Here is a picture I am going to use to describe with similes and alliterations:
Using a simile (remember- ‘like a’ or ‘as a’ to compare something): Soft hues of auburn, gold and emerald shimmer across the lake like a polished mirror.
Using an alliteration (more than one word starting with the same letter): Fresh, forest floors press against the glowing green strands of grass that shiver in the breeze of the lake.
I would love to see the scene that you choose to describe, and the vocabulary that you use to describe it!
Maths: Congratulations to these pupils who have achieved their bronze certificates so far this week! Please continue to use mathletics, gain points and I will share your certificates!
