Rainbow Simile Poem

Many of you will have made rainbow pictures during lockdown so today’s literacy lesson will be based on the colours of the rainbow.

 

A simile is when you compare something to something else, and you might use the phrase ‘as        as’.  We would like you to complete the rainbow simile poem sheet by thinking of a comparison for each colour.  Try to avoid using just one word to describe e.g. ‘as red as a tomato’. Try to push yourself to come up with some really imaginative descriptions with lots of detail  e.g.  ‘as red as a sunburnt tomato on a blazing hot summer’s day’

 

Reading comprehension:

Purple Mash book – Watch Out! River Running Wild based on a farm.

Read Chapter 4 and complete Chapter 4 quiz.

Maths task

Starter

What is the time now? What will the time be in 10 minutes time? What was the time one hour ago?

 

Main Activity

They Mystery of the Missing Macaws

Science

Endangered Animals

 

Look through the attached PowerPoint on Endangered animals.  Choose an endangered animal you would like to find out more about.  You can present your findings however you choose: Poster, PowerPoint, worksheet, video recording.

 

For less confident children I have attached some fact files for different endangered animals to give them a starting point.  Read through the factfiles and take out certain pieces of information to use in your own work.

Task

Literacy task

Bleezer’s Ice cream Store

Today’s lesson is also on poetry, but will be focussing on alliteration (and rhyme too).  Most of you know that alliteration is when the same sound is repeated at the start of many words e.g. Miss Maher’s making marmalade.

 

Watch ‘Bleezer’s Ice Cream Store’ a poem by Jack Prelutsky (there are some tricky words in the poem but don’t worry too much, just get the general feel for it)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuPlUQvViX8

 

You may have noticed the alliteration in many of the flavours, and the rhyming words at the end of every line.  We would like you to come up with your own crazy flavours that involve some alliteration.  Stick to food items only in your flavours, and to make them really whacky, try adding a dinner item with a dessert item! Here are some words you may want to include at the end of your flavours

 

Twist, Dip, Swirl, Sherbet, Nut, Fudge, Chip, Chunk, Chew, Cluster, Ripple, and Ribbon

 

To extend you could try to make pairs of rhyming lines, but your poems do not need to rhyme. To do this, you will need to think of a rhyming word for each of the above that you choose to use (the words at the end of the line).

 

In the pictures section I have attached an image with some ideas on.  In the documents section is a PDF that shows you step by step how to draw the ice cream.  Once you have drafted your ideas, write them out neatly next to each flavour as in the picture.  Use lots of bright colours to finish off your picture!

 

Reading comprehension:

Purple Mash book – Watch Out! River Running Wild based on a farm.

Read Chapter 5 and complete Chapter 5 quiz.
