Magic Carpet Ride - display picture, hand-drawn

This serene scene will appeal to your children’s imagination, as they put themselves in the place of the happily gliding children. With the ocean, palm trees and setting sun below, and the soft, clear sky around them, this fantastical image will inspire your class to write, draw, discuss or enact the concepts conveyed. It could be used in combination with my magic mat poetry-writing sheet, for instance, available in my shop here. It will also brighten up a dark corner, of course!

Under the Sea Poem Frame + Example, Y2-4

Under the Sea Poem Frame + Example, Y2-4

This intriguingly illustrated sheet sets children dreaming, and the simple line starters prompt them to think up words for their thoughts. Extra-keen writers can add further description about the sea - and anything else related - on the wavy lines below. An example version, showing just one of the infinite ways the poem could be written, is supplied on a separate sheet. Prepare your class by studying and discussing sea flora and fauna, treasure and detritus, mythical creatures and characters, and sounds, shapes and colours, too. Consider caves, sand and rocks, the rusty remains of ancient shipwrecks, picnic items washed away, bubbles, echoes - all sorts! Build up banks of describing words, imagery, action words and onomatopoeias as you go, but informally, keeping the atmosphere as free as the sea. Alliteration might crop up (e.g. shimmery and shiny) but don’t force it. Let individual creativity flow!

This lively-looking writing frame invites imaginative and adventurous input, with description, imagery and action. Children will love describing the sea monster, and how he moves over the waves.

Show pictures of the sea and discuss that too, building word ideas for the first line - ‘In the _, _, _ sea…’ A great end-of-term activity for a hot summer’s day.
