Good morning Year 1,

We hope that you had a wonderful half term break and are all keeping safe and well at home! Our unit on explorers continues this half term, but moves on to look at other famous people who have explored things other than dinosaurs.

This week we will complete our final week on dinosaurs, focusing on dinosaur poetry and the explorer Mary Anning.

 

We hope you have a great day today!

Miss Young, Mrs Robinson and Miss Briggs

This week we will be working towards writing our own dinosaur poem.  We will start by sharing the poem, called ‘Walking through the Jungle.’ Listen to the link below, as the poem is read. Talk to your adult about the poem, did you notice anything? What was your favourite part?  Today we will investigate how a poem is put together by looking for key features.  Look at the poem handout below and use coloured pencils to colour over any of these things.

  • Any lines that are the same in each verse.
  • Are there any questions?
