Show not tell sentences

We have been practising writing show not tell sentences in literacy.

Show not tell sentences are when you describe a character’s actions and body language to describe their mood or feelings rather than using words like angry, upset or shocked.

So instead of writing the Mad Hatter was sad, you could write

One tear slowly ran down the Mad Hatter’s face as he stared at the floor.

Can you describe one of the characters above using a show not tell sentence?

The Hogwarts Sound Collector

Today we have been adapting the Sound Collector poem and giving it a magical Hogwarts twist.

We all started with the same opening stanza, then we wrote our own stanzas.

Can you share your favourite line from your poem?

A stranger called at Hogwarts this morning

Dressed all in black and grey

Put every sound into a bag

And carried them away.

This report will tell you all about the natural disasters from volcanoes , earthquakes and tornadoes. Before making up your mind which is the biggest natural disaster you will need to read this report.

What happens when a volcano is formed?

When a volcano is forming you should be able to feel heat under your feet , see a little lump in the ground and it could be anywhere. The pressure builds up from under ground making a lumpy shape on top. There are 3 stages of a volcano active , dormant and extinct. Active is where it could erupt any second. dormant means it won’t erupt for 1000 years and extinct means it will never erupt again.

How do plates create an earthquake?

To create an earthquake the plates start rubbing against each other and over each other and finally  a split creates a big push on the Earth’s crust which keeps repeating which shakes the ground. An earthquake can last for several seconds or an hour.

How is a tornado formed?

A tornado is formed by when the hot air meets the cold air , there can be rain , thunder and lightening. Lots of big clouds role in and a little funnel appears. It gets bigger but thinner , tornadoes are measured F1 , F2 , F3 , F4 and F5.
