I can plan and write a poem about volcanoes


Today, we will be looking to plan and write our own poems about volcanoes.


Watch the videos below and write down any words that come to mind.

Kilauea Volcano Eruption | A Perfect Planet | BBC Earth

Iceland volcano: Drone footage captures stunning up-close view of eruption

You now need to have a go at writing your own volcano poem, using some of the words written down after watching the video.


You may wish to write an acrostic poem (see video) or one that rhymes (like yesterday). Rhyming dictionaries can be great to help. 


Bring your poem in to class to share with everyone when we return!
