The Value of Vocabulary!

Selsdon year 5

Year 5 have used their learning time to gain a greater understanding of how words have great power! In order to write a descriptive and emotive piece of writing related to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, they have researched the event to identify technical language, used thesauri and dictionaries to identify synonyms and ensure meanings of words are suitable to generate a great word bank! Furthermore, they have even used the 5 senses to generate powerful words and phrases to explain how someone would feel before, during and after the eruption!

They have used the generated word bank to them help them plan!
