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 meet him. Think sensibly - ask questions about his life. We don't want to loads of questions asking what his favourite crisps/fruit/drink are!!

 

 

Topic/Computing:

This afternoon you are going to do some research and create a powerpoint or a word document poster to share lots of information about what life was like in Britain in the Roman times. 

Try to find out:

  • Did the Romans change anything in Britain?
  • Did the Romans bring anything to Britain?
  • Did the Romans invent anything?

 

Below is a document with lots of information in.
