Dear Year 1,
We're so sad not to see you on the last day before half term. Don't worry, we have left you some fantastic learning for you to do at home. We hope you will enjoy!
Keep safe inside and have a super day!
From all of the year 1 staff, have a wonderful half term break!
Mrs Coyston, Mrs Stollery & Mrs Cray
Write your second poem using the same structure as 'I'm a little penguin' for support.
In class, we collected lots of ideas about albatrosses (expanded noun phrases and verbs). These are on our washing line at school but you could use some of my ideas (in documents below video). If you would prefer to write your poem about a seal, that is fine too.
Things to remember;
When you have finished your poem, stand up and perform your poem in front of your family using expression in your voice.
Extra Challenge: If you would like an extra challenge, you could also include some adverbs in your poem.
E.g. Soaring quickly through the air
Hungrily hunting for their prey
Galumphing clumsily over the cold, slushy snow
You might like to make your poems into a little poetry book. Over the holidays, if you have enjoyed poetry, you might even write more poems about other animals you like.
Worksheets below. If you don't have a printer, don't worry, you could write the answers on a piece of paper.
