LO: I can write an imaginative poem.


Yesterday you planned ideas for your poem about what could be beyond this magical door.

 

In your plan you included ideas about:

• Different settings for example: space, jungle, mountain, ocean, tropical island, desert.
• Different countries you may want to go to or famous landmarks that you may want to visit: The pyramids of Egypt, The Taj Mahal, The Eiffel tower.
• The places we can’t go to due to lockdown: theme parks, cinema, museum, swimming pool, theatre, school.
• The people we would like to see like your friends and family.


Now that you have brainstormed a list of ideas, have a go at writing a poem, using the repeated line,
Beyond the magical door, I could…….


Use your senses to give an idea to your audience about what is behind the door (see, hear, smell, feel).
As part of your plan, try to include description and examples of figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification, alliteration).

 

Click on the following link to look at different examples of figurative language.

https://prezi.com/ft46tlh3band/a-figurative-language-powerpoint/

Here is an example of a poem. You may use the ideas to help you.

The Magical Door

I opened the magical door and saw …
a world turned upside down:
the sea, now a floating ceiling,
the clouds, an inviting carpet.

I opened the magical door and saw …
the reflection of myself:
standing, searching, staring,
questioning how this was possible.

I opened the magical door and saw …
a sweet-treat paradise:
clouds of candy floss,
drifting across a bubble gum sky.

I opened the magical door and saw …
a field of waves:
blue potatoes were leaping,
playing in white foam,
as puzzled farmers watched from sunny shores

I opened the magical door and saw …
The image of a street I used to know,
But as I entered, everything changed;
As I reached out, everything had gone.

I opened the magical door and saw …
A forest of mirrors,
surrounding me in dazzling white light,
leading me into a world of mystery.

I opened the magical door and saw…
A feast of my favourite foods
Guarded by monster chips
Waiting to fight off all invaders.

I opened the magical door and saw …
Monstrous mobile phones
Herding people into little houses
And laughing, laughing, laughing.

I opened the magical door and saw…
The future.

Type up the first draft of your poem and upload onto J2E. We look forward to reading your creative ideas.

This week you have been learning about how to punctuate speech and how you can describe the action in a story through the use of dialogue between characters. You have also been using speech to develop a character’s personality.

Today you are going to use what you have learnt and plan a piece of narrative writing about the following film.Tomorrow you will be completing your writing.

Watch the film carefully and take notes about what is happening in the scene. As part of your narrative, create a dialogue between the two main characters (the boys trapped in the battle).

Through your dialogue, you should show the action in the scene and what the reader can learn about the personalities of your characters. Remember to punctuate your speech correctly.
 

https://www.literacyshed.com/beyondthelines.html


As part of your plan consider:
• Sense impressions (what do we hear, see, touch/feel, smell).
• Examples of figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification).
• Show not tell how the characters are feeling.
• Dialogue to show how you can describe the action.
• Dialogue to show the characters’ personalities.
• How do you want your audience to feel?

 

Upload your plan onto J2E files. If you complete your plan in your book, take a picture and upload it onto J2E files.
