We are continuing with our writing for The Nowhere Emporium this week.


Today is our final sentence stacking day so you will need to split your paper into a 'thinking side' and a 'writing side'. We are going to be writing sentences to describe what happens next inside of the emporium. 



Learning chunk 1 - Simile

Firstly, look at the red colour thesaurus (below) and collect your favourite synonyms for 'red'. Then, pair each synonym with a negative adjective e.g. bitter cherries, rough garnet, poisoned apple, sour currant. 


Learning chunk 2 - Ellipsis

  • Gather a bank of synonyms for 'looked' e.g. glimpsed, noticed, stared, watched, peeped, peered.
  • Collect a bank of 'nervous' actions e.g. fumbled, twitched, gulped.


Learning chunk 3 - Adjectives

Yesterday, the little man in the shop disappeared behind the curtain. For our final learning chunk we are going to describe the man's smile as he is looking through a gap in the curtain. 

  • Gather negative adjectives for the man's smile e.g. menacing, sneering, wry, devious, smug, thin, false, evil.
