Today we are going to investigate idioms. You may have heard people say these when chatting and idioms can often be found in poetry.
TASK 1: To find out what an idiom is and see some examples.
TASK 2: Read through the Day 4 Idiomatic expressions PowerPoint. There are lots of idioms in the English language that refer to the face.
Have a look at the idioms on the slides and see if you can guess/work out what they might mean. You can record this in your workbook.
TASK 3: Complete the idioms matching activity sheet.
Using your new knowledge of idioms, read through the two lists and match the idiom to the correct meaning. You don't have to print this out, you can write the matching items in your workbook.
Just for fun!
If you would like to do some more work on this, click on the PowerPoint below and see if you can use the clues to guess the idiom.
There is also a link to a funny poem called 'Be Glad Your Nose Is on Your Face.'
And finally...COMPETITION TIME!
Look back at all the wonderful poems that you have written this week about faces. Choose your favourite one and we would like you to send it to us so we can enter into the competition being held by Somerset Literacy Network. The closing date for all entries is 19 April 2021 so you have plenty of time (although we think it's best to do it now in case you forget!).
We can't wait to read your poems.
