WALT: recognise and name 2D shapes.
regular shape = when all the sides are the same length
irregular shape = when the sides are different lengths
THINK: How many different 2D shapes do you already know?
Take a look at the picture below, the pointpoint and watch the video to help you with your 2D shapes.
TASK 1 - SHAPE HUNT
Look around your house or outside.
Can you spot any of the different 2D shapes?
TASK 2 - NAME THE SHAPE
Look at the activity below. How many of the shapes can you name?
TASK 3 - Name the shape, IRREGULAR OR REGULAR?
Regular shape -> all the sides are the same length.
Irregular shape -> all the lengths are different lengths
TASK: Write next to each shape:
* the name of the shape
* is it regular or irregular?
Explain the difference between a regular shape and irregular shape in your own words.
WALT: Create different forms of poetry
This week we are going to create our own dragon poems. Over the next couple of days, we will look at 3 different poem types. Today we are going to start with a 'What Am I?' poem.
A 'What Am I?' poem is similar to a riddle. In the poem, you are describing the look or characteristics of the animal without saying which animal it is.
Take a look at this poem:
The above poem describes the characteristics of the snail. It says 'He cannot hop. He cannot run at all.' because he has no legs! How might you describe the movement of your dragon?
Another thing you might have noticed is the rhyming couplets at the end of each stanza (this is the verse of a poem). 'All' rhymes with 'wall' and 'go rhymes with 'slow'.
You are going to write a 'What Am I?' poem for the dragon you created yesterday.
Think about what you dragon looks like - does it have sharp fangs or large wings - and how you dragon might move or act.
