Writing Challenge!

As we near the end of the term, I’m going to set you a writing challenge each day  to try and produce different types of writing linked to genres we have covered in Dragonflies.

Watch this video:

Rio Olympics

Challenge 1

Image Poetry: Can you create an ‘If I were…’ poem e.g.

If I were a monkey I’d climb the tallest tree

If I were a monkey no hunters would catch me.

If I were a monkey I’d swing from branch to vine.

If I were a monkey I’d be cheeky all the time.    But you could write this better!


Other ideas:

  1. Science: Today we are going to think about muscles in the human body.
  • Bitesize Muscles – learn about muscles here
  • How many of your muscles can you name? Perhaps draw around yourself on some old wallpaper and label your body. Carry out research to learn new body parts.

Have a great Tuesday,

Miss Whit 🙂
