This week we have continued looking at the text, 'What the ladybird heard'. This time we have been focussing on rhyming and describing words. We have been enjoying some more large scale drawings - this time we drew a characters from the book and wrote describing words or sentences around them.
We also got creative by making ladybird sun catchers. First we drew a circle onto black paper and cut it out. Then we drew another circle in the middle and cut that out too. We drew eyes onto the card and stuck it face down onto sticky back plastic. Some of us placed red cellophane onto the sticky back plastic first and then added the black spots. Some of us did it the other at round!
We had a go at writing 'puddle poems' using our knowledge of describing words. We drew a puddle and wrote the name of the character we wanted to describe in the middle. We imagined a stone being dropped into the puddle and water splashing out. Next to those splashes, we needed to think of words to describe the character. At the end, we wrote the words in a list and created our puddle poems. Some of us even performed our poems using instruments, different voices, adding actions or sound effects.
