Literacy Tasks Week 4

What is Alliteration?

Alliteration is when you use the same letter sound at the start of closely connected words in a sentence.

An example of alliteration is: "The bird sang sweetly."

Alliteration can make your words more engaging – and entertaining. And, when your writing engages your audience they are more likely to pay attention and remember what you say.


  • Matthew met Michael at the Moor.
  • Busy buzzing, the bee behaved beautifully

Alliteration is all around us...

You will notice that there are a lot of characters and actors in TV shows and films who have alliteration in their names. 

  • Donald Duck
  • Spongebob Squarepants
  • Fred Flinstone
  • Marilyn Monroe
  • Mickey Mouse
  • Peter Parker



Take a look at the story settings. When you have chosen a setting, use the 5Ws to help you think about who may live there..where is it? How can you describe it? Is it a friendly place? How can we get there?

Use your senses when you write-what can you see? What can you feel? What can you hear? Remember that your teachers will be looking our for 2Ad or LLL sentences and lots of wow words! 

You could write a description and make a model of your setting using lego or junk modelling, or draw a picture using Purple Mash or JIT. Can you add your setting into a story? 

Read the poem about homes carefully. The answers that you will need are in the text.
