Building Vocabulary

We will be building our vocabulary through revision of word classes and learning about figurative language.

Word classes


The name of a person, place, object, thing, emotion or idea

Common nouns

* do not need a capital letter
e.g. fish, table, sad, town, boy

Proper nouns

* do need a capital letter as they are the specific name of an individual
e.g. Robert, Stevenage, Lodge Farm


A word that can replace a noun
e.g. he, she, it, they, we, their, I, me, my


Describes a noun
e.g. beautiful, weary, sparkling, evil, stormy, cerise


Is an action or state
e.g. danced, run, grin, whisper, yelled, became, am


A word or phrase that adds more detail to an adjective, verb or another adverb
e.g. gently, swiftly, here, now, very, really

Figurative Language


A way to describe things by comparing them to other things using the words as or like.
e.g. my teacher is as fierce as a dragon, the moon was like a silver coin


Describing (comparing) one thing as if it is another. The noun becomes the compared object.
e.g. My teacher is a fierce dragon, the moon is a silver coin


Describing something as having human feelings and actions
e.g. The trees danced in the gentle breeze, The angry rain thundered onto the rooftops

Simile, metaphors and personification


When words which begin with the same sound are repeated close together in the same phrase or sentence
e.g. Wild winds whistled through the wintry woodlands


Onomatopoeia is when a word’s pronunciation imitates its sound
e.g. Plop! Whoosh! The bees buzzed outside, The metal machine clunked
