Did you choose whether you would like to write a poem about a seal or an albatross?
After watching the seal and/or the albatross nature videos, we are going to collect verbs to describe what the animal does or how it moves. We will use the -ing suffix to write the verbs in the present tense and we will also be practising adding more descriptive information, in order to collect ideas for our poem.
Choose 3-5 verbs that you have collected (after watching nature videos) and write a short phrase for each one. Try to make your phrases more interesting using adjectives/expanded noun phrases.
Soaring through the cold, wintery air.
Hunting for delicious fish
Relaxing on the frozen ice
Collecting food for their fat, fluffy chicks
