4. The Daily Five – Project

You have now learnt about V.E. day on 8th May.  Please could you now read about it and answer some questions.

There are three different reading comprehension sheets with questions:

One for Pink group

One for Red group

One for each Blue and Yellow Group.

 Tomorrow we are going to bake a wartime recipe called ‘Rock Cakes’ so you might like to check if you have all the ingredients!


5. The Daily Five - Reading and Reading Comprehension

Today we are going to have a go at writing an acrostic poem.  Here is using the name of a whale.  Whale Words is on our Year 2 Class Story on Class Dojo.


A Right Whale Acrostic 


Read this with your parent/carer:


R iding through the waves as fast as the wind

I magine seeing five diving together!

G igantic flippers flapping like paddles on a boat

H uge head plunging into the stormy, grey spray

T hese are the most beautiful whales of all!


Notice how the first letters of each line go together, top to bottom, to spell

out the Right whale’s name – r i g h t!

NOW CAN YOU HAVE A GO:  This tool kit might help you:


1. Write the letters of your whale’s name down the left hand side of the

paper. Use capital letters and make sure you get the spelling right!


2. Now for each letter create a line that carries on from the letter and says

something about your whale.


3. See if you can include some great adjectives in your lines.


4. See if you can include a simile in one of your lines.
