During this second week, children will continue to identify and use adjectives, nouns and verbs as well as begin to explore adverbs of manner. They will focus on two main poems: ‘The Lone Dog’ by Irene Rutherford McLeod and ‘Slowly’ by James Reeves. Throughout the week they will analyse their structure whilst learning the importance of carefully selecting powerful verbs and adjectives. Pupils will enjoy working together to create new poems (based on these two examples) and will end lessons by giving and receiving positive feedback with other members of the class.
