Today we are starting a new reading and writing topic. Our work is going to be based around Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

We will begin today by reading chapter 1 and chapter 2. 

Task 1:

We are now going to think about similes. 

A simile is a phrase where we compare something or somebody to something else. 

Charlie’s grandparents are described in Chapter 1 using similes. Here are some examples: ‘as shrivelled as prunes’ and ‘as bony as skeletons.’

Your job today is to create a list of similes of your own to describe the grandparents. Have a look at the pictures below to help you visualise and create some similes. Be creative, think about comparing them to strange things. Use adjectives to help you as well!

 

 

Task 2:

Imagine you could meet Grandpa Joe. Make a list of 5 questions you would ask him when you met him. This sensibly - ask questions about his life. We don't want to loads of questions like what his favourite crisps/fruit/drink are!!
