Follow the internal link below & complete lesson 4 from the Letters and Sounds phonics.

WALT recognise simple recurring language in poetry - rhyme.


Watch the videos below from BBC Bitesize.

Today's learning focus is on rhyme and rhyming words.

NOT ALL poems rhyme!

Words rhyme when they have the same sounds at the end. 


If it is helpful, I have also attached some word rhyming activities and worksheets that you may choose to complete too if you feel that you need to practise your rhyming skills.


Once you have watched the videos, I would then like you to follow the link to the Year 2 BBC Bitesize lesson on poems which has a focus on rhyming. 


You DO NOT need to complete Activity 1, although you may look at this to remind yourself about what makes good sentences in Year 2.


When you are completing today's work - please practise your Kinetic letter formation and take time to form your letters correctly.


I would like you to have a go at Activity two where you need to fill in the missing words in the poem. You will need to use your skills from yesterday's lesson, looking for repetition of words and the use of numbers will also help you.


Then I would like you to complete Activity three where you can have a go at writing your own simple counting poem that rhymes.


Then I have attached a poem from our anthology of poems.

It is called, ' I like Minibeasts.' and is by Marian Swinger.

Can you spot the rhyming words in this poem?


Challenge: Using the video about rhyme schemes, can you work out the rhyme scheme for this poem? Can you work out the pattern of the poem?


Optional additional resources if you feel that your child needs to practise rhyming.
