Yesterday, we met the main character of 'The Tin Forest'.  It was an old man. Take a look at this video.  It will show you the beginning of the book which was hidden and also help you with our learning today about descriptive writing.

In your packs you will find a sheet called The Tin Forest - Dream Description (it has today's date on it).  


Here is the picture from the sheet in full glorious colour:



Your task is to write a description of the forest that the old man dreams about.


Remember to include:

* Adjectives and descriptive phrases

* Fronted adverbials to help with interesting sentence starters.

* Include the senses - see, touch, smell, hear, taste (and character feelings)

* Well organised sentences that are well punctuated!


I am looking forward to reading your spectacular pieces of writing!

Make sure you spend time every day on myON reading books and taking quizzes for your AR target this term.
