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.
Slimy and scary
Noisily, slowly, mysteriously
Cried, waited, moaned, smiled.

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.
