This weeks task are to be able to identify describing words in writing and be able to use them in your own writing. Watch this short video to find out what describing words (adjectives) are. Please follow the link to watch the video


Adjectives are also known as describing words. An adjective is a word that describes a noun (the name of a thing or a place).

'It was a terrible book.'

The word 'terrible' is a describing word because it tells us what the book (the noun) was like.


Activity 1: Let's be descriptive

Try and write down as many describing words mentioned in the above video. You could re-watch the video and write them down as the video is playing.

Try and think of some more describing words for things around your home and see how many you can describe. You could try to describe an item beginning with each letter of the alphabet?

For example:

  • apple = juicy apple
  • bed = comfy bed
  • cake - delicious cake
  • dish - dirty dish
