Autumn animals poem

Nice little lesson (or possibly two) on creating a poem about animals you might see in autumn. Magpieing the structure off another poem the children think carefully about the different elements needed to create each verse e.g. verb to describe how the animal is moving/ what it looks like/ what it is doing.
Also included is a planning sheet to record ideas and enable working collaboratively, scaffolded sheet for the lower achievers and supporting vocabulary, as well as simile ideas they may want to include.
A self assessment checklist is also included.
