This week we will be writing a poem about poppies to help us think about Remembrance Sunday this weekend. To start the week, draw a poppy and write as many adjectives you can think of around it. Remember an adjective is a word that describes something. For example a poppy is red, bright and beautiful. Here is a picture of a poppy to help start you off.
There are lots of different types of poetry. One way to write poetry is to make a shape poem. Here are some examples of shape poems.
Draw the outline of a poppy. Using the adjectives you wrote down yesterday can you fill your poppy shape with words describing it. Challenge - write some of the adjectives in descriptive sentences. You may want to get a grown up to draw lines for you to write on.
Another type of poem is an acrostic poem. This is where you write the word the poem is about down the side of the page. You then write a word coming off each letter to describe this. So if we are writing about poppies an acrostic poem may look like this:
Opening in the sun
You help us remember!
Now try and write your own acrostic poem about poppies. You can use adjectives you have thought of in your previous work to help you.
