Direct and indirect speech

Hi 3/4’s,

This week for grammar we’ll be looking at direct and indirect speech. Do you know the difference between the two?

Direct speech is quoting what someone said word for word. When we want to quote what want someone says in writing we include quotations/talking marks “…”

For example: The girl shouted, “I can’t wait to leave”.

Indirect speech is where we don’t quote someone word for word but where we give the general idea of what a person was saying.

For example: The girl could not wait to leave as she shouted loudly.

To find out more about direct and indirect speech watch the video below:

Sound play in poetry – Onomatopoeia

Hi 3/4’s,

This week for English we’ll continue looking at different poetic devices in poetry. This week we’ll be looking at “onomatopoeia”.

Wait….what is onomatopoeia?

Onomatopoeia is is a type of word that represents a certain sound and is often used for effect in writing. In other words – when said out loud, onomatopoeic words sound like the sound that they describe. They’re often used to add emotion and make writing more fun, expressive and vivid.

To find out more about onomatopoeia watch the video below:

Still don’t get it? Don’t worry, it’s a tricky concept to understand. Here’s another video to help you out:

After watching the videos can you think of any other examples of onomatopoeic words? Yes! You can? Comment any of your ideas below 🙂

Poetry – Alliteration

Hi 3/4’s,

Today we continue our learning about poetry and look at a poetic device called alliteration. Have you heard of it before? 

Alliteration is when words close together start with the same sound or letter. 

For example: Trevor the Terrible Tiger (all words starting with a t)

Watch the funny video below and listen to the song for more examples of alliteration:

After watching the video can you think of any other examples of alliteration? If so, leave a comment 🙂
