English: Out of the window Eye Spy
We've all spent a lot of time looking out of the window over the last few weeks. After a while, I started to notice things that I had not really seen before. I have two robins who live in the garden but they don t like each other. There is the scruffy robin and the well kept robin. They argue.
I thought I would write a list poem about the things that I can see out of the window that interest me. To make the poem more interesting, I chose secret things that I think no one else would spot unless they had spent a lot of time looking! This sort of poem is another list poem but it is about real things. I called it eye spy because of the old game.
Now read this 'Eye Spy' poem by Pie Corbett. You can hear me read it by clicking below.

When you are writing, you can make things sound more real and build the picture for the reader by naming things
Try to name things so don t write about a flower but name it, e.g. a poppy, daisy or rose. Naming things helps the reader to see what you are writing about. You are trying to notice details, bring them alive for the reader and make them sound real.
Now write your own Eye Spy poem. Start each line with Eye Spy...
I hope that you understand more about this coronavirus and included losts of facts in your posters.
Today we are going to think about what it can feel like to belong and to feel safe, and what to do if I don’t feel safe.
We will start our session with our Calm -Me Time. Sit on a chair, with your feet on the floor and follow the instructions. If you can, find a grown up to do this with you.
Listen and follow the instructions for your Calm ME Time
Show me : learning to do things that help us feel safe
Let me learn: Using our senses to feel safe
Write the 5 senses down the side of a page and against each one record ways that each can help you feel calm and safe.
Some examples could be:
- Smelling lavender or another calming scent; deep breathing exercises
- Listening to relaxing music, a meditation, or writing their own Calm Me script, singing
- Stroking a pet or cuddling a soft toy; doing their own hand or foot massage; dancing
- Eating something delicious
- Looking at photos, videos or pictures that help them feel better
Remember, you can always speak to a grown up you trust if you feel unsafe or worried about anything.
