Dickens’ Description

We all saw the film with Scrooge walking down a freezing winter street.

Yesterday we looked at how Charles Dickens described this in his writing.

We explored words and phrases that described sounds, darkness and the weather.

Your task is to write your own description of a cold eerie place in the style of Dickens.

Good luck in your writing

Animal Poem

Think of an animal that you like and know lots about.

Think about it.

How does it move?

How does it eat?

How does it sound?

How does it look?

Where does it live?

Write a short poem about your animal. Choose

words really carefully. Try to use a simile and a

metaphor.
