Writing

 

This week, we have 2 different writing activities for you to have a go at! 

You could also use both activities to inspire your Art work this week - have a look at the Topic page to find out more!

 

 

The first activity for you to try is creating an "I wish..." poem. 

Wishes - what would you wish for?

 

Wishes are great fun to explore. We all wish for many things each day.

Whether it be for the sun to keep shining or for Boris to tell us we can return to school .... !!

 

We would love you to have a go at writing an 'I wish ... list poem. Look at the examples of list poems below that other children have written.

 

Try to remember to use the checklist below to help you write an amazing poem:

 

Adventurous vocabulary

Use the five senses

Can you ask a question?

Interesting adjectives to create a clear image in your readers mind.

Similes

Alliteration ( words starting with the same letter)

 

We look forward to reading all about about your wishes this week! I'm also excited to see how you present your poem. 

 

Who inspires you?

We would also like you to think about what inspiration means this week.

Inspiring people come in all shapes and sizes: from WW2 veterans to NHS workers, to brothers and sisters or a neighbour or elderly relative. Perhaps the person that inspires you is a historical figure, or perhaps it is someone who you know. There are so many amazing people all around us doing heroic and inspiring things.

 

Can you think of someone who inspires you?

 

This week Primary League Premier Stars have a challenge for you to draw a wonderful picture of a person who inspires you and to write about why you admire them. When you have finished , you could send it to them and brighten up their day!

 

Why not even write a letter to the nurses/ doctors and staff at the NHS - especially as this Tuesday (12th May) marks International Nurses Day! Our nurses deserve to be celebrated now more than ever for all the hard work they do! Have a look at our Topic Page for more information. 

 

Further information about this challenge is attached below.
