WALT Perform a poem we have written

 

Something really special about poetry is that it is meant to be read out loud. Today your job is to practice and  perform your acrostic poem out loud to someone who lives in your house.

You could upload a picture or video of you performing your poem, you could draw a picture of you performing your poem or just tell us who you performed it to and what they thought! Make sure you let us know how your performance went on purple mash.

 

Make sure you practice first and have lots of fun sharing your poem!

WALT Write an acrostic poem about our favourite toy

Today you are going to write up your acrostic poem about your favourite toy!

Use the template to help you, put one letter of the word in each box. You can write extra lines if your toy has a long name! You can use the template, create your own or type up your poem. We would love it if you decorated your poem with pictures and colour. You can do the first letter of each line in different colours if you like but please remember to do your writing in pencil.

 

Have a look at Miss Wakley’s example to help you.

*write your toy’s name down the side and choose one adjective for each letter to describe your toy or how they make you feel. You could make these words rhyme but don’t worry if they don’t as this is very tricky.

For example:

Perfect

Amazing

Tiny

Cuddly

Happy

 

**write your toy’s name and try to think of a word or short sentence for each letter to describe your toy or how they make you feel. Try to make at least two of these rhyme.

For example:

Perfect toy to cuddle,

An old friend.

There’s a hole in his nose that I will never mend

Cuddly and cosy

Happy and warm

 

***write your toy’s name and think of a sentence for each letter to describe your toy or how they make you feel. Can you make your poem rhyme?

Perfect toy to cuddle.

An old friend

There’s a hole in his nose that I will never mend

Cuddles me every night

Hugs me tight when I get a fright

 

We can’t wait to see your poems!

WALT plan an acrostic poem about our favourite toy

 

Have a think about your favourite toy. Does it have a name? Or maybe it is a car, blocks or doll. It could be the toy you take to bed at night or your favourite thing to play with.

 

This is Miss Wakley’s favourite toy from when she was little. He is called Patch. If you like, you could upload a picture of your favourite toy for your teacher to see.

Today you are going to plan an acrostic poem about your toy. Miss Wakley has created a mind map with words and phrases about her toy.

 

Write down some ideas that you can include in your poem. Remember to think of words that start with each letter of your toy’s name, as each line in the poem is a letter in the name.

 

*think of different words to describe your toy and how it makes you feel

**think of some words and short sentences to describe your toy and how it makes you feel

***think of sentences to describe your toy and how it makes you feel.
