L.O. To plan a poem
First listen to Nicola Bayley’s poem Parrot Cat.
Then we are going to imagine the cat wants to be a monkey cat.
Watch the video about macaque monkeys to give your some ideas for how the monkey cat would act before you start your plan.
Then in your work books draw a picture of how the cat may have thought about being a monkey.
· In Crab Cat he looked out of the window and saw the sea
· In Elephant Cat he saw elephant bookends on the book shelf
· And in Parrot Cat he saw the little boy painting a picture of a parrot
Could he have:
Seen a book? Perhaps the Monkey Puzzle or Night Monkey, Day Monkey by Julia Donaldson.
Seen a program on television
Seen one in a film— the monkey from Aladdin
Or gone to the zoo
Have you got a better idea?
Illustrate the first part of the poem
If I were a monkey instead of a cat…
Then think about the following:
Write the ideas in your book ready to write your poem tomorrow.
When you have finished, have a look at mine, are yours similar or different to mine?
Topic Broomwood Values - Respect
When we engage in conversation with another person it is important we show them respect. This means that we listen carefully, without interrupting, looking at one another and using good manners throughout. Would yawning or turning away when our friend is talking be respectful?
With your adult or a brother or sister look at the Name 5 things challenge cards and take turns naming objects. Perhaps acknowledge the other person's ideas for example that's a good one, well done! Use kind manners throughout.
