This week we will be reading, writing, and performing our own dinosaur poems!
I love poetry! Poems are fantastic fun to perform and to write, as you can play around with lots of descriptive and exciting language. Have a look at this short video clip of the poet Paul Cookson reading his poem, King of the Dinosaurs!
Can you make a Sound Sandwich?
Have a look at the sound words below.
Pick an animal or a dinosaur that matches one of the words from the sound word list.
1) The first line starts ‘I love it when…’ Place the sound-word at the end of the sentence.
2) Now add a second rhyming line.
3) Simply repeat the first line to finish!
4) Read it aloud with sound effects.
Here are some examples:
I love it when my teeth go snap,
Hippos cheer and flamingos’ clap,
I love it when my teeth go snap.
I love it when my feet go smash,
Triceratops roar and Stegosaurus’ crash,
I love it when my feet go smash.
