Year 3/4 Haiku Writing - Oceans and the Sea
This haiku writing pack introduces children to writing a haiku using the 5 senses. Using an ocean theme, children will learn what a haiku is, generate descriptive and sensory words about oceans and seas, plan their haiku using a structured organiser, then write a creative haiku about the ocean.

Included in this pack:
- Bright and colourful IWB (Smartboard notebook) with HD images of the ocean, waves, and cliffs to stimulate the senses
- Detailed lesson plan, including a starter and plenary, with discussion questions
- A structured organiser for children to plan and organise their ideas
- A modified SEN (or LA) organiser with pictures, larger font, and more accessible language
- Links to required sound clips
