Hi Year 6. This week we have been discussing how different texts are written for different reasons (purpose) and for different people (audience). Your homework will show how much you have understood! Please remember it is literacy homework so I will be looking at your spelling punctuation and grammar as well as what is actually written.
Metaphors 1: Give 5 different purposes and give examples of the kind of places you may find them, for example, in a joke book, in a newspaper etc.
Metaphors 2: Choose a purpose and write a paragraph to show you understand it. What features would you expect to find if you were to read an extract? For example. ‘To create mystery: In some writing to create mystery I would expect to find…’
Similes: Choose 2 different purposes and write a paragraph discussing each of them- you must include the features that you would find if you were to read them. For example. ‘Writing to inform: In some informative writing I would expect to find….’
Conjunctions. Choose 2 different purposes and write a paragraph for each of them. You must include their features and discuss the different effects they would have on the audience.
Please remember SPaG as you write!
Miss Sahin and Mr McCabe
