Monday 4th May

Spellings and handwriting - head over to the phonics section for today's work.

 

Tuesday 5th May

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.

 

Wednesday 6th May

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?

Examples

Splashes, dribbles, trickles – there are over 10 to find in the poem.

 

Thursday 7th May

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: 

Raindrops

Glisten

In the sunlight

Sparkle

On spider’s webs

Dribble

Down the windows

Drop

From the bursting clouds

Reflect

The moon’s glow

Run

Quickly off umbrellas

Sprinkle

Lightly on my cheeks
