ENGLISH How to be a Lion by Ed Vere
A kenning is an old Anglo-Saxon and Viking form of description where the writer tries to hide what the thing, person or animal is.
Instead of using: The lion is…, the writer uses more interesting nouns to describe the lion.
Read this kenning about a Lion.This was written by 7-year old Matthew. What do you think of the description? Has Matthew included all the description on how to be a lion?
Lion by Matthew, 7, Devon, UK
Watch the lion video again.
Can you write a more complete description on how to be a lion? What characteristics do they have?
If you find it difficult to write a kenning like Matthew, write using adjectives and adverbs in sentences.
HOW TO BE A LION by Ed Vere
Look at the cover of Ed Vere's book.
What colours has the artist used?
How does the picture make you feel?
Look at the lion and the expression on his face.
Do you think this lion is like lions in real life? Before you listen to Ed Vere read the story, imagine the lion's day-what is he like as a character? Where does he go and what does he enjoy doing?
Create a poster with your picture of Ed Vere's lion of your ideas, use because, if and maybe in your sentences or you could create a short comic type story board to answer the questions. When you're finished, click the video below to listen to Ed Vere read the story-how similar were your ideas to the story?
DESCRIBING LEONARD THE LION
Watch and listen to Ed Vere reading How to be a Lion again. Draw an outline picture of Leonard-Don't colour him in! Around the outside of Leonard, write adjectives to describe what he looks like and on the inside, some adjectives to describe Leonard's personality. Re-read your work: Is Leonard a typical lion? Write some sentences to explain what you think. Use because to give your reasons why. If you want to try and draw Leonard like Ed Vere, take a look at the video below, where Ed Vere shows you how he drew him! Give it a go!
