Remember that throughout the week, we will be learning about different types of poems, writing different poems and by the end of the week performing your favourite poem from the week! Yesterday you will have written a limerick poem. Today you will be writing an acrostic poem. On Friday you will be able to send in your favourite poem for 'Poetry Got Talent' and I will post all the entries onto the class page!
Watch the video below to understand what an acrostic poem is.
Then have a go at the activity below before writing your own acrostic poem.
Again, you can write your acrostic about your own topic. I have put down a few words that may help inspire you!
Today I would like you to explore where different types of food comes from.
Pick 10 items from your cupboard.
Read the label to find our where it come from
Find it on a map (you may need to draw one or print one out)
Label it like in the picture
Questions to consider:
Are there any items that come from countries you wouldn't expect?
Why do you think food comes from different countries?
How does it end up on our supermarket shelves?
Has this food always come from this country? If not, where did it originate from?
Pick an item of food and find out the distance it travelled. Which one has travelled the most to get to our supermarket shelves?
