Due Tuesday 20th November

 

English

 Can you create a firework or bonfire night poem like the ones we have looked at in class? Choose your amazing words really carefully. Make them colourful and bright! 


 

BANG! There goes another one,
Screaming as it goes.
It's getting high,
Up in the sky,
And fizzle - there she blows!

WHOOSH! Up high above the house,
Behind a trail of sparks.
Yellow, orange,
Red and white,
Exploding in the dark!

 

 

Spinning in a sudden whirr,

Catching you off guard with an unexpected bang!

Hold your breath and look right up!

Fireworks falling slowly, slowly back down.

A golden waterfall, a moonshine flutter

High, high, high, way up high

Now down,

                   down

                               down

                                       they fall.

Royal colours, a regal display in the air.

The audience watch the ceremony way up there!.

Whizz bangs     U     P     N       up and down.

                     J     M     I     G

Wheels spinning round and round.

A night to remember, the 5th of November.

    English 

    We have been reading some fantastic books in English. 

    First we looked at Roald Dahl's The Minipins. 

               

    Then we explored 'The Day the Crayons Quit'.
