Home Learning and Creation Myths

Can I use precise nouns?

Can I add meaning to my nouns by using well-chosen adjectives?

Today in S.P.A.G. we were practising using precise nouns and the describing them using well-chosen  adjectives. We also began our Creation Myths literacy theme.


Creation myths describe the how the world began; how people, animals and the natural world came into being. They are often weird, wonderful and wacky. Who would have thought that earth was born from an egg?


There are few creation myths to read here:

For your home learning tonight please rewrite these simple sentences using precise nouns and powerful adjectives. Please do this in your red literacy home learning books. Due back in on Thursday.

For example…….

The mountains rose high into the sky.

The immense and magnificent Himalayas rose into the sky.

  1. The birds flew in the sky.
  2. The river flowed over the land.
  3. The trees covered the ground.
  4. The sea lapped against the land.
  5. People gathered together in groups.
  6. Weather spread across the globe.

This should take about 15 minutes. Please spend the rest of the time reading and learning this creation myth:

Remember, you should be spending 30 minutes on your home learning, as well as at least 20 minutes reading. I would like you all to bring in the book you are reading at the moment and your reading diary tomorrow please.

Thanks! Mr Ben
