Friday 25th March
Today we are continuing with looking at the second part of The Highwayman. Once we have read all of the poem, we will be reading back through and identifying any figurative language, such as metaphors, similes, personification and alliteration. We will also be looking for any poetic features, such as repetition, rhyme, rhyming couplets.
Once you have read the poem and feel you understand the story, I would like you choose two characters from the poem. I would like you to create character profiles for both of these characters in the form of WANTED posters. The posters must include information about the character like, name, gender, age etc. It should also include facts about relatives, where they live, their occupation and known associates. The poster must also include a picture of your character, using information about their appearance from the poem.
Then, can you write a creative piece about the short film, using as many similes and metaphors as you can. Include figurative language and 'show me, don't tell me' description.

In class, we're studying the book 'The Explorer'. We'll be working on our VIPERS skills. Please work through the activity booklet above (some of the tasks state to work in pairs or groups, but you should be able to complete them on your own or with an adult).
As well as this booklet, you can use The Literacy Shed VIPERS (linked on the previous page) and Twinkl workbooks to practise your SPaG skills.
Feel free to complete some creative writing, or keep a diary of your time at home.
