Now that you know a little bit about volcanoes, and your descriptive writing is improving, today I would like you to write your own description about the volcanic eruption? See if you can include some personification and alliteration to enhance the richness of your language.
Here is an example to get you started:
It was the moment they had been dreading for decades: the volcano had finally erupted. The earth shook, as torrents of golden death cascaded over the helpless landscape. Clouds of ash swarmed over the countryside, enveloping everything in their path. Chaos reigned as the beast that had been sleeping for years, now awoken, smote his fury upon the world.
In the distance a flash of silvery lightning licked across the sky: a snake’s forked tongue lashing out in fury to strike its prey. The world was on fire. It was natures turn to take its revenge.
Can you draw your own volcanic eruption? You could label it with some adjectives or even sentences to describe what is happening.
If you're up for it today, why don't you try one of the reading comprehensions in your SATs pack. Read the texts carefully before answering the questions.
It’s day 4 and I’m hoping you’re ready for some more equivalent fractions work. If you’re finding this tricky, keep going as you may find that your understanding develops as the unit unfolds. If you’re finding it easy, then great – I love your confidence - but don’t relax as there are some things in here that will really get you thinking! This lady is a bit quicker so you may need to pause from time to time to ensure you’re really taking everything in. If you find you don’t understand something, you can always slide the video clip back and watch it again.
As promised, I’ve uploaded yet another arithmetic paper and I’m looking for even higher scores today! Take care today not to make any silly slips – double check your answers and show your workings (wow it feels like ages since I’ve said that!)
Most of all, enjoy your learning. I am hoping that you can feel yourself improving each day… I can’t wait to get you all back into school to see how much you have progressed!
