Weekly Focus: Poetry


This week we will be talking about poetry and rhyme. Have a chat with an adult about what you think a poem is. We will be focusing on a poem called All About Me


First, read the poem or ask an adult to read it to you. Think about the rhythm of the poem and read it a few times until you know it inside out. There are a few ways to view the poem below:

Next, identify the pairs of rhyming words at the end of each line. Here are the first two pairs:


true, blue

catch, match


Now, have a go at answering these comprehension questions:

Finally, explore poetry further by reading some other rhyming poems. Perhaps you have some on your bookshelves at home. Otherwise, here are some links:

Weekly Focus: Poetry


This week, we will be using the All About Me poem from the reading task to help us to write our own poems. Follow these steps to create your masterpiece:


1. Make some rough notes about your hobbies and group them in rhymes. Your notes may look something like this:



2. Use the ideas in your notes to write your own All About Me poem. You might like to use the original poem as a template and just change a few words and phrases. Others may wish to write a poem from scratch. Remember to start each line with a capital letter. Don't worry too much about other punctuation! Here is my short example:


3. Read your poem aloud and make any changes that you feel are necessarily to give your poem better rhythm.


4. Copy your final poem out in neat and decorate it!
