Let’s take a look at today’s timetable:
1) Read the poem: How the Bumble-Bee got his Stripes
- Read the poem How the Bumble-Bee got his Stripes (pages 2-3). Read it in your head the first time and then try reading it out loud. Can you make the poem flow as you read it?
2) Search for the features a narrative poem
- Look at the Narrative Poem Features (page 4).
- Which of these features do the Bumble-Bee poem use. (hint: not all the features are used).
- Write on the poem, to show some of the features that you have spotted.
3) Write sentences with noun-phrases
- Use the Revision Card (page 5) to remind you about noun phrases.
- Now, write some sentences about the animal characters from the poem. Use a descriptive noun-phrase in each of your sentences. Look at the Examples to see how to do this.
- Use the pictures of The Animals to inspire you. Try to write two sentences for each animal.
When you have finished, talk to a grown-up about your sentences. Show them the noun phrases that you used.
Try the Fun-Time Extra if you have time
- Watch the story of the Tiger and Stripes
- How is it similar to the story of the bumble-bee? How is it different? Which do you prefer? Why?
- Can you write some descriptive sentences about the tiger?
