Here is an example: 

 

There once was a virus called corona

It was not a loner

Like fire it spread

Sending many to their bed

We’ve never known’a virus like corona.

 

So here’s the changes that went into place

It effected the whole human race

2 metres we stood apart

This was just the start

We needed to stay in our own space.

 

 

 

We stayed in day upon day

To keep conrona virus at bay

We had to stay home

We could not roam

For if we did corona would stay.

 

Just once a week we would pop out

Into the supermarkets with not many about

We went for our essential supplies

It looked like everyone was in disguise

Masks, gloves and hand gel throughout.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Tuesday 

Edit and add to your limerick. 

Type it up and explore different fonts and colours to emphasize your rhyming lines. 

 

Wednesday

Write a recount, diary extract or story about the virus. 

Focus today on perfecting your introduction - how did the virus come/ start what were your thoughts and feelings? 

THINK HOW WILL I MAKE MINE STAND OUT FROM ANYONE ELSE'S? .........
