Challenge 1 – Engaging with Poetical Language

 

Log onto the Children’s poetry website on the link to listen to the poem

 

 

Think carefully about the adjectives (describing words) the nouns (names of objects, people or places), and the verbs (action words) that the poet has used.

 

Can you illustrate the poem? Illustrate each line, in turn.

Make your illustration as colourful as possible, taking care that it includes everything from the poem.

 

Splish Splash Splosh

Challenge 2 –Recognising Poetry Structures and Handwriting

 

Can you re-read the poem?

We are going to create an anthology (collection) of poems.

In your best handwriting can you copy out the poem, exactly as it appears on the page.

Remember, when handwriting, to form your letters correctly.

 

Tall letters reach up to the sun, small letters sit on the boat, and water letters,

dip their toes in the sea.

 

 

Challenge 3 – Understanding Poetry Comprehension and Inference

 

Can you answer the questions about the poem we have read?

    3. Why does the poet call the doggies “drippy?”

 

    4. What picture does the poet paint, about the little fishes?

 

    5. What does the poet mean when he says “buses rushing past do it?”

 

    6. Where is the poet saying that dolphins do it? Why does he use this colour?
