LO:  I can use alliteration in my writing


Today we are looking at alliteration and how we can use this in our writing to make it more interesting, exciting and fun!

So, we would like you to look at the PowerPoint on alliteration and then have a go at the sheet below.


For the sheet there are two tasks.

1. Root vegetable alliteration- using the words in the box, write the the name (blue word) and vegetable (black word) to each picture. ensure the name and the vegetable alliterate.

2. For each vegetable can you think of an alliterative sentence. Remember to write in your neatest handwriting.


 If you would like further alliteration practice/challenge, take a look at the alliteration zoo powerpoint. Can you think of your own alliterate phrase for an animal for each letter of the alphabet.




Our focus today is solving 2 step money problems. This will require you to consolidate all your previous work on money. You may find drawing a bar model helps you identify what is required for a question.


Important: When you complete a question, remember to go back and check you answered the question asked. These are 2 step problems so if you only did one thing, you have only answered half of the question.
