Please read the poem below about the Eiffel Tower. This was written by a girl called Sophie. There is a typed up version of the poem too in case the original is tricky to read.
Can you identify any figurative language such as alliteration, similes, metaphors or personification? Can you spot any adjectives too?
In your exercise book I would like you to review the poem. What do you like or not like? Are there any examples of figurative language that you really like?
Emmanuel Macron, who is the French President, wrote an Eiffel Tower poem for Sophie because he read and enjoyed her poem so much. His poem was written in French but has been translated into English. His poem is below.
Your spellings this week are:
Ask your parents to pour sand or salt into a shallow box, tray or plate and then practice writing your spellings in it with your finger.
In your packs, you have a plastic wallet labelled 'handwriting'. I would like you to write out the words and sentences on unit 16, page 17 in your exercise books. I have attached a photograph below in case the sheet is missing from your pack. Look carefully at the letter formation and at which letters are joined.
