I created this homework when I introduced adverbs to our English Top Set Year 3 children. They have to choose appropriate adverbs to complete sentences, then go on to identify different parts of speech within a text taken from the Wind in the Willows.
This script is for four teachers (Our four heads of houses put it together) and comes from the slogan of National Book Week - 'Tuck into a Book!'. It encourages children to see what different kinds of books are available to read and encourages them to try something new and get stuck into reading.
Here is the script and corresponding Powerpoint for our Word Religion Day assembly. It was a Year 3 class that did this but it could also be used for a Year 4 class. We only had 19 children so you'd need to split some of the speaking parts if you wanted all children to speak.
We sang 'The World in Union' afterwards.
Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors. <br />
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors. <br />
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy! <br />
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted. <br />
Also a bank of poems that I developed using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop. <br />
MAY UPDATE: I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource! <br />

Go through the PowerPoint slide showing statements about Shakespeare. Students move to the left or right of the room depending on whether they think the statement is true or false. Once students have made their decision, click the mouse and show the answer. Use the Teacher's Notes to give students a little bit more information about the fact. This is an interactive starter activity that students really engage with.
