Better Together

Thursday 14th May

Good morning! Welcome to another Thursday....keep going, it is almost the weekend...I promise.

Here are the tasks for today.

English

1st - practise your spellings.

Today is a creative writing task for everyone. We would like you to write a poem based upon a RAINBOW.

You could make an acrostic - using the letters of the word RAINBOW to build 7 lines of poetry.

You could make a SHAPE poem - putting your ideas within the lines of a arching rainbow.

You could try a HAIKU - using words that total just 17 syllables in 3 lines =  5/7/5

You could try rhyme, multiple verses, or more - the options are endless.

Here are some links to get you thinking:
