How has your week started?
I have really enjoyed reading your adventure stories on Purple Mash and seeing your photos from over the weekend. Keep them coming in!
How did you get on with your acrostic poems yesterday? Send them in or share them on Purple Mash, it would be great to see them.
Today, we are going to be looking at haikus. They are a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.
Here is an example of a haiku, (it should also help you to remember how many syllables are in each line).
I am first with five
Then seven in the middle
Five again to end.
Today I would like you to try and write your own haiku, I have posted a picture below to give you some inspiration.
CHALLENGE: Haikus are sometimes written as clues without saying what they are writing about. For example:
Green and speckled legs,
Hop on logs and lily pads
Splash in cool water.
Can you write some of your own clue haikus?
Share them with us and we’ll try and solve them!
How did you do with the equivalent fractions yesterday?
Today we are going to be finding fractions of amounts.
REMEMBER: When we did this at school, we used bar models to help us solve the questions. Here is a reminder of how we did it.
Here are your questions for today.
Keep on washing your hands, looking after yourselves and everyone else at home with you and remember to be kind to yourself.
