WALT: select effective vocabulary.

There are lots of words in the world.

Depending on their intended usage, some words are more suitable than others. They are more effective in painting a picture in the reader's mind. Some words are more exciting and are more suited for purpose.

Some words have the same or similar meanings. These are called synonyms.


A synonym for big is giant.


Task 1:

We are still thinking of words to describe the wolf. You will have a range of adjectives (including some synonyms) which you will need to sort into a Zone of Relevance. 

RED section words are RUBBISH

ORANGE section words are OK

GREEN section words are GREAT


Can you think of any words of your own that you can add on to the Zone of Relevance in another colour?


Task 2:

Sort the synonyms for BIG, BAD, SHARP and SOFT.

Use a synonym in a sentence.

WALT: sort 2d shapes.

You can hopefully recognise 2d shapes by now which may include circles, squares, triangles, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons and octagons. These shapes can be shown in a range of different orientations.

When you sort shapes they can be sorted into more than one way.

You could sort them and use your understanding of key language including:

- number of sides

- number of vertices

 - whether they are symmetrical.

Shared Reading

Reading WALT: compare and understand characters.

You are read the story again and re-look at the 4 main characters in The Three Little Pigs in more detail:




How are they different?

How are they the same?


There is a word bank with lots of adjectives that could be used to describe the personalities of the main characters. Some words could match more than 1 character.

Use a dictionary or use lots of discussion to help you understand the adjectives and write them in the circles for the pigs or in the oval if they describe the wolf.

Any words that fit the pigs and the wolf you can write in the grey panel as these could be used to describe any of the characters.




Can you add some of your own words that you have thought of to describe the characters in another colour?


Too Tricky?!... Try this! Read the words and match them to the picture.
