Yesterday you all did a great job mind mapping lots of words and phrases to describe the Spring objects/animals. Lots of you used interesting adjectives, alliteration, similes and even calligrams. Well done!

Today you are going to use your ideas from yesterday to help you create a shape poem.


First of all I would like you to have another look through the PowerPoint to remind you of what shape poems look like and how to write them.


Next, choose one object or animal. Using the ideas you brainstormed and an outline of the object or animal you have chosen, create your shape poem.


There are outlines with wide lines and outlines with narrow lines for you to choose between.


Steps to Success:

1. Remember to stay inside the lines of the picture. Start a new line when you get close to the edge.

2. Don’t forget to use full stops and capital letters or exclamation marks.

3. Remember to use adjectives, alliteration, similes and calligrams.

4. Remember to use neat handwriting.
