YEAR 5 POETRY UNIT

WEEK ONE


During today s lesson

During today’s 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

So what have we learnt so far?


How the bumble bee got his stripes

How the Bumble-Bee Got His Stripes

By Nick Toczek


How the bumble bee got his stripes1

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 stripes2

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 couldn’t make up his mind

And the yellow sun shone so brightly

That the bumble-bee’s bum became yellow


How the bumble bee got his stripes3

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 couldn’t make up his mind

And the black night grew so dark

That the bumble-bee’s hips became black.


How the bumble bee got his stripes4

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 couldn’t make up his mind,

And the yellow sun shone so brightly

That the bumble-bee’s waist became yellow


What have you noticed

Think about our previous lessons on narrative poetry

Share your ideas with a partner

What have you noticed?


So what have we noticed

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 noticed1

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 noticed2

So what have we noticed ?

  • To emphasise the bumble-bee’s behaviour, the poet uses repetition in each verse.

    ‘But the bumble-bee

    Just bumbled around and buzzed around

    And couldn’t 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 noticed3

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-bee’s body yellow where as the dark sky makes it black


In your independent work

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


Year 5 poetry unit

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?


Words like these are called homophones

Can you think of any others?

How about……

there & their

hear & here

threw & through

Words like these are called HOMOPHONES


Now it s over to you

Write the next verses of How the Bumble-Bee Got His Stripes with a partner.

You have approximately 20 minutes

Now it’s over to you!

Use the writing frame to help you.


To finish our lesson

To finish our lesson …

Let’s 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 tomorrow’s Literacy lesson, we will read the real ending of the poem and focus more upon homophones, this time within sentences.

Well done everyone!
