On Monday, we are going to be writing our own version of the penguin poem but we're going to write about another magnificent creature, humpback whales.
Today's English lesson is about collecting ideas so that we can include lots of interesting adjectives in our poems. The lesson is in the form of a playlist today as it includes an external video about Humpback whales. Click on the link and the playlist videos will appear in order.
As part of the lesson, we will watch video clips of whales. We will then think of adjectives to describe the flippers, mouth, eyes and barnicles. In my video, I give lots of examples, children can borrow these. They should only borrow the adjectives they like and think they might like to use in their poem. They can also think of their own ideas too. If you are unable to print the worksheet, that is fine, I model using a plain piece of paper in the video.
