English (You can join the live lesson on Microsoft Teams)

Today we are going to be looking at personification.

I have attached the PowerPoint and the highlighted WAGOLL if you missed the Teams meeting.

Task 1

Using the mix and match english sentences, match the 2 halves of the sentence together to create a set of personification sentences.

Please upload your mix and match sentences to Seesaw under “English Upload 1”.

Task 2

I would like you to now come up with at least 10 personification descriptions for an erupting volcano. If you would like to do more and push yourself, it will help when we write our volcano poem!

I have included some videos and photos underneath for some inspiration! (When watching Video 1, think about how the lava is 'swallowing' the car)

For example

  • The volcano swallowed everything that came under it.
  • The volcano spit fire and ash into the sky.
  • Lava spews out of the volcano's mouth.

For this week in art, we will be looking at some of Stephanie Peters drawings and then evaluating them! After that we are going to have a go at copying one of her pieces.
