Challenges

2)

Reading – LO: create a puzzle

Using this week’s version of FirstNews, your task today is to create your own puzzle like the ones we have completed in previous home learning tasks.
This could be a crossword puzzle or a wordsearch (where the words you have to find are given as clues).
I’d like you to pick an article, within the newspaper and use this to create some clues for your puzzle. It’s a good idea to use an article that’s about the size of a page so that it is challenging enough.
Remember, the words you choose for your puzzle must be in the article!
 
Here is a crossword from a previous week to help you.

 

Writing – LO: figurative language

Using this BBC Bitesize lesson, let’s build on our poetry learning from yesterday and explore figurative language.

You need to read the web page, watch the videos and complete activities one and two.
