Reading: Viking Boy –Chapter 10 Figurative language.  Watch the video Figurative Language Read the recap below.

What Is Figurative Language?

Figurative language is a way of using words to compare something to something else – beyond the literal meaning, it is used for emphasis and impact.

Figurative language makes our writing more interesting, It also helps the reader create a mental image of our meaning.

Simile - A simile compares two things by using the words “like” or “as.”

Your eyes sparkle like diamonds.

I tiptoed as quietly as a mouse.

Metaphor - A metaphor compares one thing to another without using “like” or “as.”

Laughter is music for the soul.

Those ideas are food for thought.

Personification - Personification gives human qualities to animals, non-living objects, or ideas.

The stars danced in the sky.

In the jungle, the lion sings tonight.

Hyperbole -  Hyperbole is obvious exaggeration to make a point.

She knows everything about math!

You are the best teacher in the entire universe.

My Turn

‘Nail Howled and Gunnar picked up the club to deal with Ivar, smashing it into his knee. Ivar went down like a tree felled by an axe. ‘  This is an example of a Simile, It uses Like to compare the way Ivar collapsed when Gunnar hit his knee with the club to a tree being cut down by an axe.

Your Turn

Identify examples of figurative language within the chapter.

Remember to write down the sentence that includes the figurative language, explain what type of figurative language has been used and how you know. 

 

Using the extract below, what do you think Rurik is thinking after hearing Gunnar’s story?

‘Rurik sat listening in silence.  “I’ll take your word for it,” he said when Gunnar had finished.  “I’ve seen halls burned, and that part of your story has the feel of truth.  But the part of the Valkyries... can you prove you actually saw them?”  Gunnar looked at him, then lowered his gaze.  “No, I can’t.”

  “At least you’re honest,” said Rurik.  I’ve seen some strange things, but I’ve never seen a Valkyrie, and I’ve fought in my share of battles…”

  “So you don’t believe me,” said Gunnar.  “I swear it’s all true!”

  “That’s not nearly enough, boy.”  Rurik stood up, his face closed off once more.

Lesson 4

11.45-12.30


Reading: Viking Boy –Chapter 11- Vocabulary

Make sure you have read or listened up to chapter 11, if you haven’t done so, do this first.

Use the context of the sentences around the words to determine their meaning, then explain the meaning of the vocabulary in your own words.

My Turn

Goblet 

 “Gunnar filled Rurik’s goblet with ale from the big barrel in one corner of the hall.”

A goblet is another word for cup. I know this because in the text, ‘Gunnar went and filled up the goblet with Ale from the big barrel in the corner of the hall,’ I know that the Vikings drank ale and if Gunnar filled the goblet with ale, it is most likely to be the cup that Rurik will drink from. 

Flanked

“It was Starkad, flanked on one side by Ari and on the other by Hogni, their faces grim.”

Flanked means to be supported.  I know this because in the text, it says that Starkad was flanked on one side by Ari and on the other by Hogni, as they were all wearning  chainmail and helmets, they were ready for a fight, thins makes me think that Ari and Hogni are there to support Starkad, this maked me believe that flanked means supported.

Your Turn

Byrnie

“Hogni was also wearing chainmail, a rusty, old byrnie with big ragged holes in it that was far too short for him.”

Parried

“Two more men moved forward, their swords raised, and Rurik parried huge blows from both, blade ringing on blade.”

Flailing

“Suddenly Ari rushed forward with a yell, wildly swinging his sword.  Rurik simply stepped to one side and Ari stumbled past, flailing.

Lesson 4

11.45-12.30

Reading: Viking Boy – Chapter 13 – Authors Voice.

Make sure you have read or listened up to Chapter 13 before you start this lesson.

Figurative language is when you describe something by comparing it with something else.  Types of figurative language include:

  • Alliteration – when the author puts together two or more words with the same first letter.
  • metaphor – a phrase or sentence in which the author creates an image in the readers mind by saying that a person or object is something else.
  • simile – a phrase or sentence that compares an object or person with something else, to make a description more relatable to the reader.
  • Personification – usually involves the author describing a no-living object with verbs and adjectives that make it seem as though it is alive. 

My turn

‘The ships in the harbour stirred and creaked.  Small waves slapped against their hulls, and the sea chuckled under their keels.’ This is an example of personification as the author is describing the waves as being alive and slapping the hulls of the ships as a person would or chuckling under their keels, which are all things that a human could do but waves cannot. 

Your Turn

‘stray gleams of light from the crowds torches stabbed down through the narrow gaps between the planks.’ This is an example of __________________________.  The author has described the light from the torches ___________________________________.

 

What other examples of figurative language can you find in the chapter.  Write each example, the type of figurative language the author has used and explain how you know it is that type of figurative language.

ReadingViking Boy – Chapter 14 – Inference

Make sure you have read or listened up to Chapter 14 before you start this lesson.

What do you think of Gunnar’s plan? 

“What if they can’t get out of the hall?” said Gunnar. “We could block the doors somehow.  We could set fire to the roof as well.”  Rurik looked at Gunnar and raised his eyebrows.  “It’s worth a try,” he said.  “That would certainly keep them busy for a while.”

Would you have done the same?

Make an inference about Gunnar’s feelings thoughts and motives at the time of the excerpt below.

“The smell of smoke and fierce heat sent his mind back to the night his home had been destroyed.  He loved the idea of setting fire to Orm’s hall, of making him and the others in there suffer, if only for a little while.”

What is Thorkel’s dilemma and how does he respond to it?
