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.
Onomatopoeia describes when a word sounds like the thing to which it refers. Each onomatopoeic word is like an imitation of the noise it describes. It is one of a number of poetic techniques with which children should be familiar by the end of KS2.
