Last week we started learning about the poem ‘These Old Shoes’. Today we would like you to think about what happened to the shoes in the poem and how they have changed.

 

Draw a picture of the shoes when they were new and write a description of what they were like. Then, draw a picture of the shoes at the end of the poem and write a description of how they have changed and what they look like now they have been used for a long time. You may want to borrow words from the poem e.g. bright and neat when they were new. Don’t forget to have a look at the recorded lesson on the Year 2 blog where Miss Carter explains this in more detail.

 

You will need to think carefully about what the poem tells you about the shoes to create accurate drawings e.g. we know they have laces. You also need to use your imagination for example we don’t know exactly what colour they are, but they are bright.

Over the next two lessons you are going to write your own poem about a special piece of clothing you have worn and loved for a long time. You might choose your own shoes, or you may want to choose your favourite item of clothing or even something that you have recently outgrown.  

Talk to someone at home about your chosen item. Then draw a picture of your chosen item and around the outside of your picture, write down what you and this item have done together. Try to think of 6 adventures you have been on with this item, so you have at least 6 lines for your poem tomorrow.

Keep your work from today safe as you will be using this tomorrow to write your own list poem.

Don’t forget to watch this lesson on the Year 2 blog on Purple Mash.

Yesterday you chose your own special item of clothing and thought about all the adventures you have been on together.  If you haven’t already, please find your work from yesterday as you will need this today to write your list poem.

 

Today we are going to be using all the wonderful ideas that we thought of yesterday and putting these into a list poem. Our poem does not need to rhyme. Remember, each line of our poem will start in a capital letter and end in a full stop.

 

Yesterday Miss Carter showed you her bobble hat and spoke about the adventures they had been on together. Have a look at the video on the Year 2 blog where Miss Carter shows you how she has used these ideas and turned them into lines for her poem.

 

This Fluffy Hat

 

This fluffy hat has kept me warm on winter walks.

It has sat on my head to protect me from the wind.

This fluffy hat has listened to music in my car.

It has braved storms to catch my horse in the rain.

This fluffy has been hit by snowballs.

It has fallen with me into muddy puddles.

 

Remember to write your poem out in your neatest handwriting.

Over the last two weeks we have been thinking about the adventures we have been on with different items of clothing. We often outgrow these items and recycle them.

 

Some items of clothing are particularly special, and we might choose to keep these in our loft or safely tucked away in our drawers. What other things do you own that are special to you? Can you go and find 3 things that are special to you. E.g. a teddy, a blanket etc.

 

After you have collected your items, can you explain to someone at home why they are special to you. Then, choose just one of those items and write a short description of it.

 

In your description you need to include what it looks like using lots of adjectives and interesting words and then you might want to write about why it is special to you and your favourite memory together.

 

After you have written your description, you can draw a picture of your special item.

 

Don’t forget to upload your work on Purple Mash!
