L.O. Can I use alliteration?
What is a noun?
A noun is a word for the name of something (a person, place or thing).
Re-read part of Stone Age Boy where he enters the cave.
Questions to think about:
-How might he feel when he is there?
-How would he respond?
-Why do you think the author described the place as special?
-Why did Om take him there?
Think back to when he described the caves.
We are going to be using alliteration today. Do you know what it is and why it is used?
Then, suddenly, swoosh! their spears...
Down, down, down...
Alliteration adds interest to the story and helps words to slide off the tongue.
Think of some of our stone age vocabulary.
What adjectives could we add that start with the same letter to make it more interesting?
The big , brown bear scared the boy.
The boy woke up in the dark, dangerous cave.
What alliterative phrases could we write about Om and the boy when they are in the cave?
Write your favourite alliteration within a sentence. Not all the words in the sentence need to begin with the same letter.
They were fascinated by the fantastic features of the cave.
Om was in awe of how big and brave the boy was behaving.
