Today we are going to write a dinosaur poem using the four different sentence types- question, statement,exclamation sentence, command.

Do you remember on Wednesday, you had to sort the dinosaur sentences into the 4 groups? I have reassembled them all into 2 verses of a poem, so that you can see what you are aiming for with your own poem.

Chasmosaurus King Of The Dinosaurs Poem

I would like you to write your own poem about your favourite dinosaur. You can write it straight into your blue homework book.If you need a reminder of some of the more common dinosaurs, there are a few listed here.

Dino Pictures

When you write your poem, remember you are speaking as though you are the dinosaur , so you will use ‘I’. Follow the structure of

Line 1                          Question (Don’t forget your question mark)

Line 2                           Statement (which in this case will be an answer to the question)

Line 3                           Exclamation sentence (needs to begin with what or how and end with a !)

Line 4                           Command (usually ends with a !)

Then repeat for verse 2

Hopefully you will end up with a fantastic dinosaur poem!! You can illustrate it with a fantastic picture of your dinosaur.

HOME LEARNING
Hello everyone,

We hope you are all well and coping in these difficult circumstances.

 

Here is a list of links to sites that we subscribe to and use in the Infants: Website Links For Infants  The list also came home via ParentMail 23.3.20.

As some of you may already be aware, children up and down the country have been drawing and painting rainbows and writing colourful messages to put in their windows at home in order to bring everyone together in these times of isolation and uncertainty. If possible, we are asking each of our little Buckstones superstars to do the same, if you have not already done so 🙂 We will also be making our own rainbows in school – keep your eyes peeled! https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/parenting/families-painting-rainbows-windows-spread-17964109

If you get the chance, do remember to email us some photos of how you are spending your time at home (email details on letter dated 23.3.20) so we can start to put these on the website. 🙂
