Activity 4 - My Home

Reading Practice - Lucy’s House!
Choose a  version of ‘Lucy’s House’ to read .

Then answer the questions. ( Answers below)

Writing Task – Describing my home
Reread the text ‘Lucy’s House’ and discuss what Lucy’s house looks like. This is a description of Lucy’s house and what she likes about it. Look for examples
of adjectives (words that describe people, places and objects)
Draw a picture of your home.

This could be an illustration of the outside of your home, or your favourite room. 
Use the drawing to help you to write a description of your home. You could follow the structure of the reading text, describing each room. Try to use adjectives to add description and to make your writing more interesting.

When you have finished maybe you could make a model of your home or your favourite room to go with your writing. 

Activity 5 - Once in a Lifetime

Watch the animation below.

A man is sailing in his boat, through the air!

He hears a noise and suddenly gliding into view are some giant, flying turtles.

Once in a Lifetime

Can you make a list of verbs ( action words) and adverbs (words that describe a verb) to do with floating and sailing gracefully. Use these words to help you to write an ending to the story. Where do the turtles take the man?

 

When you have finished your story  choose a different animal to come floating by, describe the animal rather than just saying what it is.

e.g.

With yellow eyes  and striped fur, the orange and black creature, prowls through the sky. With a mouth full of sharp pointed teeth he knew he wanted to follow him. 

Can you guess which animal I think is next to float by?
