Author Masterclass

 Wild World Masterclass   Week 3       

Remember the poem we read from Wild World about the first habitat, The Rainforest – A Secret World last week, and we answered questions about the language the author used

REMEMBER

Adjective – describing word

Metaphor – compares two things which are not alike, but have something in common

e.g. My brother is the black sheep of the family

Alliteration -When words start with the same sound e.g. Peter Piper

Tone – the attitude you feel from the poem

Imagery - Parts of the poem that make you feel different things

Contrast – describing the difference between two things sometimes opposites

e.g. black and white

We are going to think about how to become good writers.

Click on the link “Advice for writing poetry”, to hear the author, Angela, giving advice and tips on how to become a great writer.

Angela’s advice says;

 

“After reading lots of books, and information, looking at lots of pictures and images about the subject, using all your senses to think about it, it is important to shut your eyes, sit very still, very quiet and wander around your imagination, spending time to imagine a place using all your senses.”

 

Writing

 

      

Look closely at the front cover and the Rainforest pages in the book.

Can you write your own poem, about the Rainforest?

You could use the mind map you created on Week 1 to help you to select the language.

Try to use some of the language you came across in the comprehension last week,

Where the tree roots creep, their clambering fingers grasping the earth,

Slimy, silver tongued snakes scurry, hunting their prey..........................

Colouring can be an effective method of Mindfulness. It can help to improve physical, mental and emotional problems, relaxing a person. Certain colours can help you sleep, think, and concentrate.
