L.O. Recapping what we have found out about the Great Fire of London.
Today, we are mixing our English and History topic together to write another style of poem for the Great Fire of London, only this time, it's an acrostic poem. We have written acrostic poems before in class. We spell a word going down the page and write words or sentences from each letter.
Please read through the slides below recapping our topic.
In your home learning pack, in your History worksheet wallet, please could you take out Activity Sheet A and the vocabulary sheet. I would like you to write an acrostic poem to describe the Great Fire, using the key words from the vocabulary sheet to help you. Try to include adjectives and verbs, or even some alliteration in your short sentences. For example:
Ginormous sparks flew throughout London.
Roaring flames engulfed the timber and thatched houses.
Every body was frightened and upset.
Once you have written your poem, you can colour in the letters.
L.O. To make a 3D owl.
This half term, we have been making 3D art with different materials. You have made lots of amazing artwork for our Great Fire of London topic, so I thought it would be fun to make some 3D artwork for something else we have been learning about... owls!
You will need coloured paper, scissors and glue!
Please watch the youtube link below which will show you how to make a funky 3D owl. Remember, you can choose your own colours and decorate it how you like! I want you to have fun!
Have a great half term!
Love, Miss Dewhurst x
