6 White- Working in a Winter Wonderland

Everyone woke up this morning to a blanket of snow covering the ground.

Today in English we started a new writing unit: Winter Sonnets. So we took this great opportunity to go outside in this perfect winter weather to inspire us in our writing.

  1. I enjoyed this unit because we played in the snow (although Absi pushed me in snow!) besides that, some of the vocabulary I’ve learnt are:
    Similie:
    The snow covered the ground like a cozy blanket
    Metaphor:
    The frost on the window are like crystal tingling.
    Personification:
    There were a herd of elephants dancing in the snow.

  2. I had a lot of fun in this lesson and learned a lot of vocab for snow and our unit. I had sentences like:
    shadows leaving footsteps as you walk.
    children playing in coldly white snow.
    Children stepping in white snow making their legs go deep.

  3. Simlie:
    The glistening frost had covered the trees like lace.
    Personification:
    The bare trees only had white hair all over them.
    Metaphor:
    The snowflakes are like diamonds in the atmosphere.

  4. The vocabulary I have used in this lesson are:icicles,snow,fuelling,invading,blanket,frosty,icey etc.One of my best figurative language phrases was ‘like a herd of elephants invading every inch of snow they could see!’

  5. The new vocabulary I have used today was, sonnet!
    ‘Ice sugars screeching under my feet as I walk along’
    ‘Laughter spread across the pitch’
    ‘Wind was whistling softly as the snow was sprinkling’
