Hello Amazing Aslans! We’re starting an exciting new writing unit called ‘Journey to the Jungle’. We will be joining Ed the Explorer on his journey to a magical jungle.
This week, we’re going to be writing some jungle-inspired poems. In the following weeks we will be writing a jungle diary and also some instructions on how to photograph a rare jungle creature!
Today we’re going to be introduced to Ed the Explorer. Can you think how he might go on magical journeys into the jungle? Watch the video below the learning objective to find out!
Learning Objective: To find meaning in a text
I can remember to:
draw a picture to show the meaning of a key word
match words that have similar meanings (synonyms)
answer questions by referring to the text
challenge: write new sentences using the key words
Please watch the video first. After watching the video, your task is to read the poem aloud using actions (either the ones I use or some of your own). Then you can draw your own poem map using pictures to represent the words in the poem.
There's an extra line in Ed's poem that I've not included in the actions and map. Can you spot which one it is? See if you can come up with your own actions and images for this!
