This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect and due in on Thursday 05 December.
In writing, we have been working on setting descriptions. We would like you to write a description of the island using the picture we have selected. Look carefully at the picture and describe what you can see.
What are the nouns? e.g. the palm trees, a cactus, animals, a cave.
What adjectives could you add? e.g. the exotic palm trees; the tall, spiky cactus; the wild animals; a mysterious cave.
Then build up your sentences to create a short, descriptive paragraph (this shouldn’t take longer than 20-30 mins). Think about whether you want your island to be a happy, friendly place, or a dark, mysterious one.
e.g. -Mysterious: Beware of the mysterious cave. It is there to swallow up any curious, wild animals trudging across the Caribbean Island.
e.g Friendly: The cool, relaxing cave is a peaceful place for the mermaids to relax. The songs of beautiful birds fill the warm air.
