LO: To learn rhymes and predictable phrases by heart

Read the poem below.

 

Nut Tree
by Julia Donaldson

Small, brown, hard, round,
The nut is lying underground.
Now a shoot begins to show.
Now the shoot begins to grow.
Tall, taller, tall as can be,
The shoot is growing into a tree.
And branches grow, and stretch and spread
With twigs and leaves above your head.
And on a windy autumn day
The nut tree bends, the branches sway,
The leaves fly off and whirl around,
And nuts go tumbling to the ground:
Small, brown, hard, round.

Read the new poem below.

Being with Nature

I can see a sticky, black slug sliding on a pretty green leaf.
I can see spotty, purple butterflies zipping between beautiful flowers. 

I can hear little, noisy crickets chirping in the long grass.
I can hear soft birdsong floating towards me on the gentle breeze. 

I can feel the lumpy, brown bark of old knobbly trees.
I can feel spiky, green grass tickling my toes. 

I can smell sweet, red and yellow blossom.
I can smell calming, purple lavender. 
    

Go into your garden or look outside your window and fill in your own nature senses poem frame. You do not need to write in full sentences, just use words and phrases.

 

Use the poem to provide ideas e.g don't write grass, write long, green grass.

Reread the poem from yesterday.

 

Being with Nature

I can see a sticky, black slug sliding on a pretty green leaf.
I can see spotty, purple butterflies zipping between beautiful flowers. 

I can hear little, noisy crickets chirping in the long grass.
I can hear soft birdsong floating towards me on the gentle breeze. 

I can feel the lumpy, brown bark of old knobbly trees.
I can feel spiky, green grass tickling my toes. 

I can smell sweet, red and yellow blossom.
I can smell calming, purple lavender. 

 

Now let's look back at our plan from yesterday and pick our favourite ideas.  Today we are going to use our favourite ideas and fill in the frame in the style of the poem. 

 

Complete each part of the plan using your best ideas from yesterday. Your challenge today is that you must use and to extend your sentences. Remember when using and that both parts of the sentence need to make sense.
