WALT listen to, discuss and express views about a wide range of contemporary and classic poetry.
Today, I would like you to listen to some of the nursery rhymes or poems that I have put links on this page for.
If you have your own poetry or nursery rhyme books at home, you may also read these if you like.
I would like you to discuss the poems with someone in your house if you can.
Once you have shared and listened to some nursery rhymes and poems, I would like you to write sentences to inform me which was your favourite and least favourite nursery rhyme or poem and tell me why. You will need to use the word 'because' in your sentences to explain why you liked or didn't like it.
You may want to think about whether it is because of what it is about, the rhythm or rhyme, the words used in it, how it makes you feel or how it is performed.
If you already have a favourite poem or nursery rhyme, you could practise reading this during the week and ask your family to record you reciting (reading or performing) it and send it to me.
I would really like to see this.
I wonder if you can try and read a poem or nursery rhyme each day this week?
If you follow the internal link below, click on video messages and scroll to the bottom of the page, you will find me reading one of my favourite poems by AA Milne called, 'The Three Foxes.'
I like this poem because I like the rhyming words and how AA Milne has changed words like worms and socks into wormses and sockses. I also like words like tootses that he uses too.
I enjoy reading this poem out loud.
If you have time, don't forget to complete your 20 minute daily phonic lesson and some handwriting practise. If you don't have enough time, then please make sure that you are taking care with your letter formation when writing your sentences today or choose 2 letters to practise (writing three by a tree you have written by the margin) before you start your sentences.
