Friday, 22nd January - Character description

We are going to write an interesting description of grandpa from the story today.  To do this you need to include noun phrases and similes.

Start by describing what you can see – what does Grandpa look like

Then describe his character – what does he do and why?

Don’t forget to use conjunctions to join and explain what you have written (and, if, so, because, but).

 

Mr Barker has modelled a good piece of writing in the video below.

 

Use the writing frame to help you.

For example:

Read the power point.

Now read the story again - can you spot any similes?

Can your child complete the sentences on the sheet to make similes?
