Today’s creative writing task is based on: The Emperor

 

Story starter:

He had been waiting all day, and now the moment had arrived. His beady, coal-black eyes narrowed. Against the unending blanket of snow that surrounded him, his slick fur looked as dark as the sky at night. The emperor penguin stood completely still, poised for action. This might be his only chance…

 

1. Can you continue the story of the emperor penguin? What is it he has been waiting for all day?

 

2, Alternatively, you could write a diary about a day in the life of an emperor penguin.

 

3. You could carry out further research and write a non-chronological report about emperor penguins.

 

 

Sentence challenge:

Which two of these sentences are statements? Which are questions? Which are commands?

The penguin has black fur.

Look at his beak!

Where do penguins live?

The emperor penguin lives in Antarctica.

What do penguins eat?

 

Question prompts to get you thinking:

What makes penguins so good at living in cold conditions? Can you think of other animals that live in such cold places?

Would penguins make good pets?

How do penguins learn to fish? What makes them good at swimming?

What is a penguin’s biggest threat?

 

Answer the questions and use your answers to help you plan your work. Don’t forget to check and edit your work. Does it make sense? Could you improve your word choices?

Can you draw a line?

 

Today, we are going to be learning about different types of lines?
What are lines? How do artists use lines? How many types of lines do you know?

 

A line is a mark made using a drawing tool or brush. There are many types of lines: thick, thin, horizontal, vertical, zigzag, diagonal, curly, curved, spiral and are often very expressive. Lines are basic tools for artists - although some artists show their lines more clearly than others. Some lines in paintings are invisible – as you don’t actually see the dark mark of the line but they are there.

 

Sometime lines can be seen by the way the artist arranges the objects in a drawing or painting.

Watch this video about the types of lines that you can draw.

Have fun drawing lines and add some colour if you want to!
