Set children’s minds in motion with Pie Corbett’s descriptive poem resource, featuring poems and activities about cars and bikes…
Writing poetry about bicycles, cars, lorries and aeroplanes can be a sure-fire hit with both boys and girls. A good start is to raid Youtube for a few film clips.
Get children to list reasons why people buy cars or bikes – and why some people might buy expensive cars. What does a car mean for different people?
Look at images of cars and bikes – guess who might drive each one. It is quite an interesting idea to take a character such as an old lady and then have them driving the sort of car that James Bond might use!
If this topic grabs your class, try writing non-chronological reports about cars and bikes.
