Monday 4th May
Spellings and handwriting - head over to the phonics section for today's work.
LO:Use simple poetic structures to substitute own ideas and write new lines/verses within an appropriate frame.
Look at rhyming words today – they may like to watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-english-rhyme-with-radzi/zvbm47h
Make a poster of rhyming words to do with the weather. I have given some examples but your child might like to come up with some of their own. Please keep them weather related where possible
Examples of rhyming words such as:
puddle muddle lane rain drain drop plop stop
Snow grow blow wet get set splash flash
They can present their work in the form of a poster in their topic books where they can also illustrate their words. Remember that presentation is really important.
Read the two poems about rain - Rain...and Puddles
Read them both with rhythm and expression.
Look for the rhyming words in the poems, discuss which poem they like best and why.
Watch the verbs PPT – a verb is a doing word. Do the actions on the PowerPoint, can they act some more verbs for you to guess? Or can you act some for your child to guess?
Re- read the Rain… poem – can your child write out all the verbs – what does the rain do in the poem?
Splashes, dribbles, trickles – there are over 10 to find in the poem.
Choose another form of weather, season or seasonal object.
Think of your verbs first - and then add a line in between - they do not have to rhyme. Set your poem out like mine. You can magpie the ideas bit try to encourage your child to think of their own.
I have done an example for you using Raindrops as my topic:
In the sunlight
On spider’s webs
Down the windows
From the bursting clouds
The moon’s glow
Quickly off umbrellas
Lightly on my cheeks
