Listen and read the poem from our class poet Joseph Coelho. Then create your own 'I am a _______' poem. It could be called 'I am a child' or 'I am a footballer' or 'I am a dancer' or 'I am a gamer' or 'I am an artist' or 'I am the pain in mums neck' or anything else that you want or that you think defines you.
Use the same format as Joseph does begin each 2 line verse with 'I am the' and the second lines mainly with 'because I'
I am a writer
Poem from Werewolf Club Rules by Joseph Coelho
I am the clash and collide of the stars
because I create worlds.
I am the awareness of the trees
because I hear the wind.
I am the sweat of a rainbow
because I refract all the colours.
I am the blood in a pen
because I ink arteries.
I am the blade in a sharpener
because I make nibs vanish.
I am the edge of a rubber,
rounded, worn and softened by mistakes.
I am the conversation of notes,
I am the holes in a flute,
knower of unknown tunes.
I am the skin of a drum.
Every hit, beat and bang
bouncing off me,
forming music from nothing
More bar model problems for you to practice this week.
The first two problems are fairly easy and most children in our class should be able to answer them the 3rd and fourth questions get trickier and require more effort. The video below shows another example of working out a problem with a model.
Make You Feel My Love - A pop ballad written by Bob Dylan and more recently performed by Adele.
Listen to the song and think about:
Do you like the song? Why?
What instruments can you hear?
What is the style of music?
How is the song put together? Chorus - Verses - Instrumentals Etc..
When you have listened to the song a few times have a go at answering the questions. If you are unsure you can always do a bit of your own research.
The song is put together in the following sections unfortunately for you I have mixed them up. Put them together in the right order to answer the last question.
Verse 4 with tag ending
