English – share the attached poem together. Talk about how this is a rhyming couplets poem and ask your child what this means. Break it down into two words – what does ‘rhyme’ mean? How many is in a ‘couple’? Ask them to write out the poem into their home learning books in a shape that the poem represents to them, for example a leaf, focus on handwriting and spelling. Children to underline all the rhyming couplet words in the poem.
Can they recognize where these words go in each line?
Extra challenge – Can you think of any more rhyming couplets that could be used in this poem? Remember to stay within the same theme of the poem.
I think that I should like to be
the entity known as a tree.
With nature’s laws I would conform,
cascading in a willow’s form.
I’d gladly green in early spring
when all the new birds start to sing.
My many slender limbs would sway
with every breezy golden day.
Sweet nectar from me bees could take,
and shade my leafy limbs would make.
Though tears might fall when heavens rain,
I’d weep for joy and feel no pain!
Maths – Talk about how when we read co-ordinates the rule is to read across first and then up. We could say ‘along the corridor and up the stairs’ to help us remember. Play Aliens Attack on the link below –
This game has two levels of difficulty, first quadrant and then extra challenge would be all four quadrants.
RE – Complete the attached activity about Living in God’s way.
