English: I would like you to create a poster of the monster from A Monster Calls and describing it using figurative language.
What is Figurative language? Figurative language is a form of the English language, which writers use to express an idea or a thought, dramatically and drastically. It helps to make your writing powerful and interesting to keep the reader engaged.
For example… describing the monster…. his trunk transformed into a body…. How can I make this better… The magnificent, umber-brown trunk transformed into a muscular body with muscles protruding from every angle, twisting and curling around his body like a snake. Here I have used powerful words and used a simile to describe the monster.
Here is a poster to help you.
Here is an example of a poster I would like you to create describing your monster. You can write sentences/phrases on your poster answering the questions on the poster. I want to see all those features when describing your monster…How he looks, walks, speaks, feels etc. Write one sentence. You can then use these sentences when writing about your monster.
Maths: In Maths we have been learning about adding fractions. If you watch my video where I have explained about comparing fractions. The same applies when you are adding fractions with different denominators. The denominators have to be the same and then you can add. If the denominators are the same then you don’t have to change them, you simply just add them.
Have a go at these.
Challenge: Here we are adding 3 fractions. The same rule applies. Change the denominators so they are equal.
