In our computing session this week we looked at anthonybrownebooks.com to find out more about our focus author. There are also games and activities on this website: here are some drawings of some  well known characters.

This week, we have been using  nouns, adjectives, adverbs and verbs to write short poems. Here is one about our focus story "The Tunnel" by Anthony Browne , written by Alex.

 

Tunnel

Tunnel

Slimy and scary

Noisily, slowly, mysteriously

Cried, waited, moaned, smiled.

Friday 12th January

This week we have been working on "The Tunnel" by Anthony Browne in our English lessons. We have used interesting adjectives, similes and place adverbials to describe the woods at the end of the tunnel.

Here are some of our fantastic sentences:

Under the grumpy grey clouds, the wind howled like a screaming child. by Ava

Three times, the thunder rumbled like bears ready to eat her. by Sonny

From the twisted treetops, Rose heard the sound of an owl as it left the old hawthorn tree. by Paige

Under the shadowy midnight moon, Rose saw the ghostly grey fog surrounding her. by Toby

Well done to Harry S in Apple class, who has worked really hard to edit and improve his senses poem about working in a Victorian mine. We used ideas from our visit to the mine at Morwellham, as well as reading other poems and a diary.

Here it is:

I can see a flickering candle.

I can feel water dripping down on my head.

I can hear the huge wagons rattle, rattle, rattle.

I can see a little door at the end of the mine.

I can smell damp clothes on me.
