Capture Some Creatures with Fabulous Feathers with Andrea Blake
Years 1 and 2: Language and Writing
They’re everywhere you care to look,
the sea, the sky, in film or book
Fierce or foolish, friendly creatures
Each with special, funny features!
We start with myths and what you’ll find
Are wondrous beasts of every kind
Choose and use your favourite features
Write or draw new mythic creatures!
Week Two we talk of dragon tales
Investigate claws, wings and scales
Decide what details you’d include
To illustrate your dragon’s mood!
Quangle-Wangle? Nonsense rhyme
In Week Three it’s Poem time!
Oogly-Boogly, Pobble, Sneetches
Play with words and names for creatures
Week Four faces you might know
On Wild Thing or on Gruffalo,
But just from your imagination
You’ll produce a new creation!
Wings or wongles, squeak or roar
This and more we must explore,
Here’s your workshop invitation
Join this creature conversation.
