Let’s start the day with some uplifting music to elevate (raise) your mood (how you feel), increase motivation and bring smiles! Don’t be shy, sing along if you know the words!
- Practise reading the poem in your head. Then try reading it out loud.
- Write a bit about this poem on the sheet What do you like? Or dislike?
2) Make up your own ideas
- Think of some items for a poem called: Things I did last week. Make these as imaginative as you can, e.g. Last week, I battled a ferocious dragon. Last week, I discovered long-lost treasure. Last week, I invented a contraption for travelling through time.
- Look at the nouns, verbs and adjectives that you have used and try to improve some so that they are really vivid and memorable. Use the Revision Card to help you remember the types of words.
3) Present your poem
- Choose your favourite items and carefully handwrite a version of your poem.
- When you have finished, add an illustration.
Look at this picture. Can you guess what this unicorn is saying? Perhaps it's saying, "I can say my 12 times tables in 10 seconds. Can you?" or perhaps it's saying, "Did you know that unicorns go to unicornity to learn?" Or maybe it's saying something else!
