YEAR 5 POETRY UNIT WEEK ONE During todays lesson We will: Review our previous learning by showing we recognise the features of this style of poetry (T6) Continue to read a range of narrative poetry (T4) Distinguish between homophones (W6) During independent work, you will:

Use the structure of a poem to write an extension based on this (T12) So what have we learnt so far? Narrative poems are poems that tell a story Features of narrative poetry can be:

introductory verse characters storyline chronological series of events often have an easily identifiable rhythm sometimes rhyming couplets punctuation to aid

expression when reading aloud How the Bumble-Bee Got His Stripes By Nick Toczek How the Bumble-Bee got His Stripes On the day that the world began, Each of the creatures was shown

All the colours of the universe; And all were told to choose Which of these they wanted for themselves. How the Bumble-Bee got His Stripes Well, that day the elephant Thought carefully and chose to be grey, But the bumble-bee Just bumbled around and buzzed around And couldnt make up his mind

And the yellow sun shone so brightly That the bumble-bees bum became yellow How the Bumble-Bee got His Stripes And that night the goldfish Thought carefully and chose to be golden, But the bumble-bee Just bumbled around and buzzed around And couldnt make up his mind And the black night grew so dark

That the bumble-bees hips became black. How the Bumble-Bee got His Stripes And the next day the cricket Thought carefully and chose to be green, But the bumble-bee Just bumbled around and buzzed around And couldnt make up his mind, And the yellow sun shone so brightly That the bumble-bees waist became yellow

What have you noticed? Think about our previous lessons on narrative poetry Share your ideas with a partner So what have we noticed ? On the day that the world began,

Each of the creatures was shown All the colours of the universe; And all were told to choose Which of these they wanted for themselves Like a narrative story opening .. this verse tells the

reader who, where, what, when, why So what have we noticed ? In the first line of each verse a new animal is introduced Well, that day the elephant And that night the goldfish And the next day the cricket

The passing of time is also shown in the first line, just as you would when you start a new paragraph in a story. So what have we noticed ? To emphasise the bumble-bees behaviour,

the poet uses repetition in each verse. But the bumble-bee Just bumbled around and buzzed around And couldnt make up his mind This also makes the reader question what might happen next. Just like in a build up section of a story.

So what have we noticed ? The passing of time is also shown in each verse with the alternate use of day and night The sun makes part of the bumble-bees body yellow where as the dark sky makes it black In your independent work, You will write the next verses of How the

Bumble-Bee Got His Stripes with a partner But first. Lets take a closer look at some of the words within the poem Each of these words can be spelt at least one other way and still sound exactly the same. Can you think of the other spellings and explain their meaning?

for sun so waist night Words like these are called HOMOPHONES How about Can you think of any others?

there & their hear & here threw & through Now its over to you! Write the next verses of How the Bumble-Bee Got His Stripes with a partner.

Use the writing frame to help you. You have approximately 20 minutes To finish our lesson Lets share an example or two of our narrative poetry extensions. And recap what the term homophone means Homophones are words with common pronunciation

but different spelling In tomorrows Literacy lesson, we will read the real ending of the poem and focus more upon homophones, this time within sentences. Well done everyone!
