Week 2 Homework

Your homework for this week is the Reading Homework. You will need to answer one question from either the fiction or non-fiction question sheet, depending on what type of book you are reading at home. Remember to complete your answer neatly and answer the question in as much detail as possible.

If you have lost your homework book or question sheets I can give you some more questions.

Homework: Sports Day Snapshot

For your homework this week you’ll be writing a short descriptive snapshot about an event from sports day. Remember a snapshot is a descriptive piece of writing about one moment.

To complete your homework, pick an event from sports day and write about your senses (see, feel, hear and wonder) in sentences. Try and use adjectives, emotive words, synonyms and similes.

Remember your homework can be posted on the blog or completed in your homework book. Please re-read your work once it has been completed and correct any basic mistakes.

Homework: Similes

Students have started learning about similes to help improve their descriptive writing.

A simile is when a writer compares something to something else by using as a or like.

Examples:

  • The massive dog was as slow as a dawdling turtle.
  • The people below looked small like tiny ants.

Similes are also improved by using adjectives and strong words.

For the students’ homework this week, they need to write 2 similes. One simile will be comparing something that is hungry and the other will be comparing something that is angry.

Students will need to think of a topic that matches the topics and then write it in a simile by comparing it to something else. Each simile should have at least one adjective.

Students can post their comment on the blog or complete their homework in their homework book.

Homework is due on Friday.
