Let’s kick off our book week celebrations by sharing our thinking about the texts we are reading at the moment. We are going to try out a new tool but before we get started there are a few things to remember:
Only use your first name
Write in full sentences
Stick to the topic
Respect yourself and others

In Reading this week, we will be learning about the different types of language authors use to make their texts interesting. One of these is onomatopoeia. Let’s watch the clip below to find out what this is.
Let’s watch it once more. This time, write down as many onomatopoeia words as you can.
Next, we are going to read The Beast Beneath the Bed by Clemency Pearce and Laura Hughes. When you hear an example of onomatopoeia, put your thumbs up. What effect do these words have on the audience?
Here’s what we found in the book:
Scritch! Scratch! – These words might have been used because they are realistic and they could make the audience feel scared.
BURRRRRPPPPPPPPP!!! – The author might have put this in to make the audience laugh or to make them feel disgusted.
WHEEEEEEEEE! – We think the author might have included this to make it seem like an adventure and to show that the beast is having fun.
What other onomatopoeia words can you think of? Add them to the comments below!
Welcome to Week 6! We are almost half way through the term. Today we are starting our unit on online reading.
