Year 4 Monday 4th May – English

Happy Star Wars day Year 4. May the 4th be with you! Today we would like you to investigate and identify powerful verbs.

Underneath, is a Tudor poem/song. This is probably the most famous Tudor poem/song of all time, Greensleeves. Listen to the performance to help you understand some of the vocabulary.

There are lots of unusual words in this, but there are also lots of powerful verbs. Powerful verbs are words used to describe an action, condition or experience.

Bronze: What do you think this line means? (VERBS IN BOLD)

“To grant whatever you would crave

Rewrite it using different verbs to show your understanding. You might want to use a dictionary or thesaurus.

Silver: Choose 3 more powerful verbs from Greensleeves and write a definition. Use a dictionary or thesaurus.

Gold: Explain why the verbs you chose are powerful. Try to use imagery (what it makes the reader think about) in your explanation.
