Y4W – Tuesday 5th May – English

Today we are going to carry on with our poetry theme and try to write our own poem, or for some, parts of a poem. First watch poet Simon Mole and complete the activity he does. This will help you when it comes to your challenges.

Bronze:
Now, instead of using the word ‘Mole’ as you did with Simon, you are going to pick a new word (your ROOT WORD). You need to choose one that is easy to rhyme so it makes your job easier. Here are some suggestions for root words, but you can choose whatever word you like:
*Snake
*Slide
*Tudor
*Light
*Green

Now, like in Simon’s video, spend 5 minutes writing down all the rhyming words you can think of. Remember, they must end with the same sound, not the same spelling.

Silver:
Using your root word and the words you collected that rhyme, write 4 lines of a poem, ensuring that they end words rhyme and make sense.

My example:
Learning about King Henry VIII is interesting,
He is infamous for being a very different king.
He is known because he did curious things,
He married many times and liked beheadings.

Gold:
Choose another root words and complete the bronze challenge again for that word. Use these two sets of rhyming words (the words from silver and the new ones) to complete 2 verses of a poem following the rhyming scheme AABB.

My example using the work from silver and the new rhyming words:
Learning about King Henry VIII is interesting,
He is infamous for being a very different king.
He had a wife, the most beautiful Queen,
But is she the best he had ever seen?

He is known because he did curious things,
He married many times and liked beheadings.
He truly is the greediest king there has been,
And to be honest, he was incredibly mean.


Please take note that the lines are roughly the same length and also look at the punctuation. 1st Rhyme A + a comma. 2nd Rhyme A + a full stop.

    Here I sit in English class, the likelihood is that I won’t pass,
    An F on my report card would be worse than swallowing glass.
    It’s not that I haven’t studied, often till late at night,
    But the rules are so confusing, I simply can’t get them right.

    Silver
    Such a bright light .
    The knight had lots of strength.
    I saw a boat it was in my sight .
    With all my might I kick the ball.
    I was right on question.
    I got a bite film a spider.
    I got a bike for my birthday.

    Gold makes them bold
    If you can’t understand
    Then you’ll never learn how to land
    It’s simple science if you remain silent.
    Gold
    Light green isn’t my favourite colour
    If you will understand then it will make you go bolder.
    I kinda think gold can’t fit, in this beat , you’ll go split.
