This resource pack aims to introduce pupils to rhyming patterns using familiar poems and rhymes. It begins by recognising rhyming patterns from a given text using the whiteboard to annotate an animated series of familiar nursery rhymes.

It then goes on to do a "fridge magnet" game where pupils drag the correct word into a gap to complete a well-known rhyme. Pupils progress to writing their own poems using text and graphics where appropriate.

The teacher will decide on the use of images or text as this will depend on the ability of the pupils.

This pack meets the National Curriculum for Wales:

  • Key Stage 1 - English, reading 1:4
  • Writing 1:3,4,5
