Home Learning Day 2 - Tuesday 24th March
Dear Year 4,
I hope that you are enjoying learning your poem for recital. It is a really famous poem and perfect for this time of year. Try to use your voice cleverly to express the meaning in each line.
Today you ideally need to find a real daffodil and do a detailed sketch. (Otherwise, use photographs online) Sketch the flower from many different angles, do a zoomed in sketch of just a section of the plant... Be creative. Cover an A4 sheet with your sketches of the daffodil, paint, colour and shade it so that it looks as real as possible. If you google 'Botanical sketches' you will see some wonderful examples. Enjoy it!
Once you have completed your sketches you will have plenty of ideas for your description of the daffodil. Start with your own ideas and then fill up the page with vocabulary and descriptive phrases using a thesaurus to help you. Once you have filled the page, can you use colouring pencils to group similar ideas together/organise your ideas. For instance, all the words or phrases about the stem could be underlined or circled in green.... All the words or phrases about the petals could be circled in yellow...
