Limerick Poems For Kids // Learning From Home

In this video, we learn how to write a Limerick Poem. I have broken down the instructions, step by step to help scaffold the kids to create their own humorou...



It's a Friday, your learning from home so it must be time for the Friday challenge! 

The Lockdown Secret



Please continue your creative writing project today. By now you should have planned some ideas and started the introduction to your story. If you are have already completed your introduction, you can move on to the next part of your story, but don't rush and try and get it all done today. We will be breaking it up into parts to make sure it is packed with detail.


If you need a reminder, this a story can be written in 1st or 3rd person perspective and is about a secret discovered by a child at home during lockdown.


The child in your story could discover something strange about their parents, neighbours or even their pet. Maybe it is a hidden room in their house that they have never noticed before, or something they find buried in the back garden. 


Really use your imagination and plenty of adjectives, expanded noun phrases, similes, metaphors, personification and everything else we have covered this year. 


Also remember not to start your stories with 'Once upon a time', this is not a fairy tale. Try not to start with 'One day' or 'One night' either. Think about how we can describe the setting or characters instead. If you are unsure, pick up any of your books at home and look at how they are started by the author.


Have fun, I can't wait to hear them.

In today's RE task we will review the topic of Stewardship. Look back at your previous work on this topic and use this to inform toad's task.


I would like you to create a poster or fact file about Stewardship. You can present this work however you like, but make sure it is informative and colourful. If you are familiar with PowerPoint you could even put it together as a presentation instead.


I would also like you to create an acrostic poem using the word Stewardship as the basis for this. In case you have forgotten what an acrostic poem is, I have started one for you below as an example.


Saving God's creations

Together we can achieve this

Today's art activity is very simple. All that you need is a pencil, some paper and a seat by a window. You will creating a sketch title 'The View From my Window'.


What I want you to do is simply sketch whatever you can see from a window of your home. You may want to include the window pane, window sill and whatever is on it with the view in the background. Alternatively, you might want to imagine the window is not there at all and simply focus on the view outside. 


I will be going over this lesson in more detail at 1pm during our Google Classroom session. I look forward to seeing you then.


When you have completed your work, try and send it in and I will put them all together. This should create an interesting look at what the world looks like for all of the individuals in the class.
