Writing

Today we are going to learn how to write a Limerick.

What is a Limerick?

Limericks are poems that are made to make people laugh. They use rhyming words and humour to create something exciting to read. Limericks are said and written a little bit like a song, there is a rhythm to them.

Watch this video on BBC bitesize to learn the rhythm and patterns!

Here are some rules:

  • Limericks are funny poems
  • There are 5 lines in a Limerick
  • Line 1, 2 and 5 end with the same rhyme
  • Line 3 and 4 rhyme with each other
  • There is a pattern to the rhythm of a limerick - kind of like a song

Here are some funny pictures. Choose one of them and write a limerick about them.

PSHE

As we said before, this week is Mental Health Awareness Week. Originally, the theme this year was 'Sleep'. However, the Mental Health Foundation decided to change the theme to 'Kindness', in response to the Coronavirus. Everyone needs a little kindness in their lives right now.  

 Watch Georgia’s video about being kind on the new First Aid Champions website. What does she say about being kind and why is it important?

After watching the video, your task is to draw a picture of a heart on a piece of paper. Now, think of all kind acts people do for you and on one side of the heart colour in a patch of your heart, a different colour for each act. Things like when your sibling plays with you or your adult cooks food that you like. Add all the kind things that you do for other people that also make you happy on the other side of the heart. Maybe you call your grandparents or tidy up all your toys. Keep going until your heart is full.

Think about how kindness can fill up your heart. Imagine how your kind acts fill up the hearts of others.

Challenge: Think of five kind acts that you’ll do during the month and write them in the boxes. You can tick them once you have done them and at the end of the month, you can send your Kind Acts booklet to us via email.
