LKS2 2020 Summer Term Home Learning Week 11
Look at the following poem about a Dragon. What features can you spot?
Write a list of adjectives, nouns, verbs, rhyming couplets and similes you can spot in the poem.
Like a white cloud in springtime, he skids through the sky,
Whistles tunes into valleys, pushes boats with a sigh.
Through the forest he scurries, catching leaves in his wings;
With a rustle of treetops, the Wind Dragon sings.
With a temper as fierce as a lion and a beauty so clear,
She sways to a calling that no one can hear.
Pulling treasures like gifts from some faraway shore,
Wild and untamed, hear the Sea Dragon’s roar.
With a wing fall as fragile as light on the sea,
She sings of frost shivers and white-gilded trees.
Unshaken, she soars, while the wind whips and blows;
Under sky-splattered starlight, the Moon Dragon glows
His teeth hide a furnace, spewing ash and bright embers.
His scales dry and charred; a face man remembers.
A flicking, forked tongue licks the sides of a stake;
The Fire Dragon feasts, leaves the world in its wake.
Look at the following images of Dragons, think of a list of expanded noun phrases and similes to describe them.
Expanded noun phrase- The magnificent, treacherous Dragon.
Simile- The dragon perched on the rock like a lion looking down on his kingdom.
The dragon flew as high as a plane.
Task 1- Think of some rhyming couplets that you could include in your poem about a dragon.
Task 2- Have a look at some shape poetry from the PowerPoint. What do you notice about them; why do you think it’s called ‘Shape Poetry’?
Using the following template (or if you’re feeling creative create your own), write a poem about a Dragon. Use all of the features you have looked at this week; nouns, adjectives, expanded noun phrases, similes and rhyming couplets.

This term Year 3 are focusing on what plants need to grow and survive. This week you are going to think about how we can help plants grow. Plant growth can be helped in a number of ways. One way we can help plants grow is by adding fertiliser to the soil. Watch video to learn all about fertiliser and what it does https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v16dEgnHKwU The man in the video grows three identical seeds into plants and adds different things to the soil to find out the best way to grow healthy plants. Fill in the comic strip about how the experiment might have been set up and explain the results that were found in the video.
This term Year 4 are focusing on food chains and dangers to the environment. Today you are going to focus on how humans can help.
