St Gregory's Catholic Primary School ‘We love, learn and grow with Jesus.’

Friday 19th June



1. Read a poem

  • Read 'These are the hands' by Michael Rosen. Read it twice – once in your head and once out loud. What rhythm do you find as you read?
  • Watch Michael Rosen reading the poem:
  • What did you notice about the poem from this performance?
  • Read the 'Poetry Questions'.
  • Think about your answers and then write some of them as sentences.

2. Highlight verbs and nouns

  • Highlight the verbs and nouns that are used in the poem.
  • Which have been hidden from Verb and Noun list? Write them in.

3.  Now for some writing

  • Think of other people who have helped during this time.
  • Complete Professions – Nouns and Verbs, thinking of nouns and verbs to do with three other groups of people.
  • Try turning your ideas into a poem. You can begin each verse with ‘These are the hands…’ (or you could think of eyes or feet or faces…)
  • Try to give your poem rhythm and perhaps rhyme too.
