Making great literacy lessons easy. Why join Plazoom?
Describe the sounds of fireworks though poetry. Introduce pupils in year 1 and year 2 to onomatopoeia, exploring the sounds that fireworks make using the model poem ‘Firework Song’. They can use their knowledge of phonics to read and spell words, finally creating their own poems using the sounds that fireworks make.
This resource pack could be used over a morning as part of a topic day on fireworks, or it could be used over a series of English lessons.
