Writing - Shakespeare: Macbeth - Figurative Language (Simile and Personification)
Today's lesson which is found here is about figurative language. What is figurative language you might ask, well we know it as personification and simile.
Personification, the clue is in the name, tries to describe objects with human like qualities, to make it sound like a person:
Simile, here we make things sound similar to one another. We use the words ...like... or as...as... to compare two items that share the same idea/colour/size etc.
Green and Yellow - Write the sentences that you are asked to write, create the vocabulary list - try to create words the teacher hasn't come up with, write the 2 sentences you are asked to write. Then have a go at doing 2 more on your own to push yourself with this recap on these useful writing skills.
Orange and Red - Write the sentences that you are asked to write, create the vocabulary list and write the 2 sentences you are asked to write. Give it a good thought. Try to use some of your own ideas to make it more impressive.
Blue - Focus on the sentences that use similes. Write a simile sentence when asked, create a useful word (vocabulary list) and try to write 2 of your own simile sentences at the end. If you think you can do the personification work - please have a go at it.
