Our task for today and tomorrow is to write an acrostic poem about ‘Spiders’.
An acrostic poem uses the letters in a topic word to begin each line of the poem. All the lines of the poem must be about the topic word which runs down the side.
Here is an example:
Sun shines brightly
Up in the sky
Nice and warm on my skin
Acrostic poems can be written using just one word on each line or by using phrases and whole sentences.
Can you start by thinking of lots of words to describe spiders? You can think about what they look like, how they move, what they eat. Try to think of things that start with the letters above.
We can finish this off tomorrow.
Today we are using spider stories to check subtraction sentences.
Can you listen to some nonsense rhymes from ‘The Owl and the Pussy-Cat and Other Nonsense Rhymes’ on Audible?
