This week we will be learning how to write a descriptive poem based on one of my favourite poems called 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright. 


1. In your remote Learning book, write today's date and underline it in pencil:

Wednesday 24th February 2021

2. Now write the LO  and underline it in pencil:

LO: To brainstorm ideas

3. In your book, write down everything that you would like to put into your box. You could use the following headings to help you get started.

  • favourite food
  • favourite people/pets
  • favourite places
  • favourite memories
  • favourite things that belong to you or were given to you.
  • Anything else you might want to add.

4. Once you have brainstormed all your ideas. Choose 6 things that you want to add to your poem ready for tomorrow.
