English

For our final SPAG lesson of the half term, I have set a spag.com assessment with ten questions. This covers many of the different grammar elements that we have learnt about so far and your answers will show me what we need to do more work on next half term.

Please complete by the end of today 😊

 

 

 

LI: I can write haikus using the correct syllables

Haikus are a Japanese form of poetry originating in Japan. They are very short, only three lines long, but the writers can spend days thinking about the correct placement of words. They really are the key example of quality, not quantity!

I challenged myself to write a Haiku today about an earthquake. Here is what I created:

Raging beneath ground,

Tearing through the roads above,

Just leaves destruction.

When writing a Haiku, the most important thing is to get the amount of syllables correct. We often count these by clapping. The Haiku pattern Is 5,7,5. See below:

Raging beneath ground, [5]

Tearing through the roads above, [7]

Just leaves destruction. [5]

 

Now it’s your turn.  I would like you to write three Haikus today. One for each of the natural disasters below. Your focus should be on the syllables and the use of excellent vocabulary. I look forward to reading them!
