What is pathetic fallacy? Pathetic fallacy is similar to personification. Pathetic fallacy is giving a human emotion to objects in nature such as the weather, e.g the raindrops wept around him. It is also used to describe the mood of the story.
E.g. She looked out of the bedroom window. It was a bright and sunny day. The birds were chirping a sweet song. This might tells us that the child is feeling happy and will have a good day.
E.g. He looked out of the bedroom window. The wind shook the branches wildly on the tree. This might tells us that the child is feeling angry and will have a bad day.
Watch the you tube video below of Mr Jordan explaining how to use pathetic fallacy.

Today we are going do something a little different. Today, we would like you to use your imagination and invent something new. It doesn't matter if it is something strange.

What are fronted adverbials? These are words or phrases moved to the front of a sentence, which adds more detail about the verb. This is usually one of the W’s (where, when or how).
Sentence – The Year 4 children ate
their lunch in the classroom.
New sentence – In the classroom, the Year 4
children ate their lunch.
Notice that a comma is used after the fronted adverbial.
To get a better understanding, watch this you tube video made by Mr Jordan. After you have finished, click on the word document below to access the worksheet. The answer sheet has been provided for you to check your answers.
Wednesday 13th January
What are action sentences? We write an action sentence to make the sentence more exciting. We think of 3 verbs (doing words) and use these to extend the sentence to create more action.
Example: She went to Grandma’s house.
Add 3 verbs – grabbed, jumped, ran
Sentence - She grabbed her bag, jumped off the
boat and ran to Grandma’s house.
The sentence sounds much more interesting when we add verbs. The worksheets provided for you, have images to help you to write your sentences. The easier sheet has the verbs already included, so you only need to write them in your sentence. If you are up for a challenge, try the other sheet, come up with your own verbs.
We are really excited to read your sentences!

What is personification? Personification is when an animal or object is given human qualities, which makes it act as if it’s alive.
For example: The ocean waves danced in the big blue sea.
The ocean can't really dance but humans can. If you can imagine an object doing actions or behaving like a person, that’s personification.
Watch the you tube video below to learn more about personification.
Time for you to have a go. Click on the word document below. All you need to do is match the first part of the sentence (object) to the second part of the sentence (human qualities). One of the worksheets is easier. After you have completed your work, remember to check your answers.
