  Today’s English task is to write a poem.

  Your first job is to go outside (or look outside if you can’t get outside right now). If you can, stand still, take a deep breath and take time to think about each of your senses. What can you see? What can you hear? What can you smell? What can you feel? What can you taste? How does being outside make you feel?

  Now try moving around and have a think about the same questions? If you want you could write down some of the words that come to mind when you think about these questions.

  Next, try writing your poem. You could write a rhyming or poem or a poem that doesn’t rhyme. You could try writing one stanza (or verse) for each of your senses, you could write an acrostic poem, a cinquain, free verse or any type of poem that you would like to use.

  Have a look at the PowerPoints and examples below to help you think of ideas if you are struggling. You could also have a listen to some of the Poems of the day that Miss Tucker has read (at the start of every day of remote learning for Year 3).

Spring by David Feng

Beautiful fresh purple flowers on a hill
Slowly moving water mill
Clumps of wet frost on the ground
Life is all around
Soft grasses pop out
Flowers sprout
Chirping birds in the woods
Weather is good
Melting mountain has begun
Frosty snow quickly runs
Bright, shiny sky is clear
Sweet, fresh, crispy smell fills the air


Let’s preserve nature by Arjun

The sun is shining,
The sky is blue,
The birds are flying,
And the breeze is so cool.

Mother Nature is trying her best
To give nothing but beautifulness,
But what do we do?
Make her a mess.

Let's make her the best
By polluting less and less,
And preserve her green dress
For our kids and the rest.


Hey, Little Bug! By Tai-Shona Britto

Hey, little stick bug
Clinging to a stem.
Where did you come from?
How did you land?

Hey, little lady bug
Sitting on my nose.
How did you get your wings,
Red as a rose?

Hey, little bumble bee.
Why is your bum so pointy?
Please don't sting me.

Hey, little marching ants.
Where are you going?
He, he, he, on my pants,
So tickly.

Hey, little butterfly
Soaring through the sky.
Would you land on my finger
And say hi and bye?

Hey, little spider
Spinning your web.
Do you come out to play
When we all go to bed?

Hey, little lightning bug
Flying through the night.
Be my guide
So I can follow your light.

Hey, little beetle.
Why do you creak
On my windowsill
While I'm trying to sleep?

Mama, Mama, come and see
All the little bugs
Playing with me.
