Tuesday

Today's learning is from BBC Bitesize. All of the learning, videos and activities can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons.

 

English

Today's focus is to understand what counting poems are and try writing one yourself. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the videos.

 

Activity 1: Write amazing sentences

Today it's your turn to be the teacher! Imagine you are teaching somebody how to write exciting sentences.

Start by writing three things you should always do when writing sentences.

Then write two more tips explaining what you think makes sentences exciting. For example: Using description in your sentences will make them more exciting.

  • Show your tips to somebody at home and get them to write five sentences themselves.
  • Mark their work, making sure they follow your tips and that their writing makes sense.

 

Activity 2: Complete the poem

Take a look at the incomplete poem below and see if you can add in words to complete it.

Jenny and her friend were searching Jenny's missing dog Spot. Whilst searching they found some interesting things.

They found seven baby bears

Sitting on rocking chairs.

They . . . . . . six beautiful bees.

Buzzing around the trees.

They found . . . . . . cool cats.

All wearing hats.

They found four . . . . . . pigs.

Playing happily with twigs.

They found . . . . . . tiny mice.

Who were pleasant and nice.

They found two slimy frogs.

Hiding under some . . . . . .

And they found one dog called Spot.

Who had missed them a lot.

Once you've filled in the missing words. Highlight the words that rhyme.

 

Activity 3: Write your own counting poem

Write your own counting poem that counts up to, or backwards from ten. It could be about absolutely anything and can be as silly as you'd like.

  • It doesn't have to rhyme, but it can if you want.
  • You could start each sentence with the number, if that helps.
  • Remember to make sure you're using capital letters and punctuation correctly.
