To write an acrostic poem

Hello Year 2, Butterflies and Caterpillars. I have two very important tasks for you to complete today. I just know though, you are going to enjoy doing it! You will have to use your English skills for the first one and for the second one, you will need to use your maths skills. I know you will be brilliant!

We are creating a rainbow trail to show support while we are at home and because they brighten up the world. After it has been raining, the rainbow brightens up the sky. Count how many you spot when you go for a walk.

I would like you to create your own ‘rainbow’ acrostic poem. An acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line make up a word.

Here is an example:

I would like you to think of an adjective or word for each letter of ‘rainbow‘ and create your own acrostic poem. You do not need to write sentences, that is your challenge below! You can decorate it how you want and then send it to Y2upload so that we can display them on our blog. Remember, your adjectives need to describe a rainbow.

Challenge: Write your own sentences to create an acrostic poem. Remember to check that your sentence makes sense and you have used a capital letter and a full stop.

If you get stuck, here are some words to help you. Try hard to think of some of your own.

red, rare, royal, admirable, awesome, always, important, interesting, imaginative, indigo, neat, new, near, bright, beautiful, blue, over, on, orange, wicked, wonderful, wet.

To identify the missing numbers

Here is Lexi’s poem!

  1. Raindrops keep falling on my head
    Awesome is like Autumn
    Inspiring and admiring
    Neon like the night sky
    Beautiful like the sun rise
    Ongoing like the wind
    Wonderful like stars in the sky at night

  2. Raring to go
    Always on the go
    I wish I had something to do
    Nothing to do
    Bored at home
    Only at home
    Wish I could go to school.

    Radiant
    Awesome
    Innocent
    Natural
    Beautiful
    Over
    Wonderful

  4. Hey Mrs Patel, 🙋🏽‍♀️ I hope your keeping safe and well? I can’t wait to see what ideas the children come up with. The acoustic poems will certainly brighten up your day. I always think of your ABC Moto: 🌈
    A-always
    B-be
    C-cheerful

  5. This is great Mrs Patel, I look forward to seeing our Caterpillars / Butterflies’ acrostic poems.
    I’ve had a little go myself, but it’s about our BH children and how well they are coping during this unprecedented time- What do you think?

    Resilient Broad Heathers,
    Always trying their best,
    In an unusual and challenging time.
    Never giving up & always giving 100%,
    Broad Heath children make us so proud,
    Our school community is our family,
    We are all in this together!

    • Hey Mrs Browning 🙋🏽‍♀️ what a great acoustic poem! There are so many aspects of your poem that sums up the children of Broad Heath. I can’t wait to see what they come up with. 🌈
