ANSWERS TO 5 A DAY
Verb – an action word (doing word).
Noun – a person, place or thing.
Adjective – a word used to describe a noun.
For your first task this week, I would like you to find 10 verbs, nouns and adjectives in a book you have at home. Once you have found them, write 8 sentences containing these words. You can use as many as you want in each sentence.
Here is an example:
The beautiful,pink flowers grew in the tall grass that surrounded the castle.
As the children played, the vicious dog barked at the bird as it flew into the tree.
TheTwits Lesson 1
Read the extract from Roald Dahl’s The Twits above. It is character descriptions of Mr and Mrs Twit. Using evidence from the text (just like we do at school) can you draw the 2 main characters?
If it says they wear blue glasses- make sure you draw glasses. If it says Mr Twit was taller than his wife- make sure he is in your drawing.
Read the extract carefully! The descriptions might not mention every feature (for example they might not describe their clothes) so you have the freedom to use your imagination.
Label your drawings with adjectives to describe the characters.
Send me an email with your drawings and I will post some to the website for the rest of the class to see.
TheTwits Lesson 2
Read the extract above and answer the questions below.
1. Why did Mr Twit decide to play this trick on Mrs Twit?
2. What did he decide to do?
3. Where did he get the frog from?
4. What adverb is used to describe how he brought it back to the house?
5. What 2 adjectives does Roald Dahl use to describe Mrs Twit?
6. What does the word ‘fetched’ mean? What could it be replaced with?
7. Why does Mrs Twit faint?
8. Is the frog scared of Mrs Twit’s screaming?How do you know?
9. Find and copy 2 things Mr Twit says the creature will do to Mrs Twit.
10. What do you think will happen tomorrow?
Mr and Mrs Twit are very cruel people. They keep a cage full of monkeys.
Read the extract below.
The Twits Lesson 3
You are going to be writing a letter to persuade the zoo keeper of the local zoo to go and save the monkeys! We have written persuasive letters before (remember our letters to the government about banning plastic bottles and bags?)
Include the following:
Why should the monkeys be released?
How will their lives be better if they’re out of their cage?
What do The Twits do that is really cruel?
What will happen to the poor monkeys if they stay in the cage?
Here is a plan below to help you write your letter.
The Twits Lesson 3
It is very important that we keep working on our methods whilst we are at home. These are things we work on every week at school so we need to keep working on them at home too.
