Y5/6 English and Art (Week beginning 22nd June)

This week, we’re still taking a break from our usual English virtual timetable (and grammar). Keep reading though – let us know when you’ve completed your global challenge and don’t forget to quiz. If you’re learning from home, please update us by email.

Poetry Scavenger Hunt

We’d like you to ‘scavenge/magpie’ your school, home and outside community for snippets of language. You could copy down or photograph words, phrases, and sentences from signs, magazines, leaflets or even snippets of conversations they overhear while out and about.

Examples of language you collect could range from the Keep Out sign on a private property to the destination on the front of a local bus.

Once you have gathered your language together, you can work to build a poem out of the scraps. It would be a good idea to choose a central theme to give the piece cohesion. You can even include corresponding artwork to enhance the visual appeal of your work too, if you wish.

Please send a photo of your poetry collage to:
