Isolation poem: When this is all over...


Read through the poem below, which was written by Mr Dudley’s niece (age 10)


When this is all over...

For granted I will no longer take,

the buzzing atmosphere of busy bustling streets,

laughter and conversation of people walking side-by-side or hand-in-hand,

a conversation face to face with family members I'm too busy to see.


When this is all over...

I will appreciate,

every moment I spend with my family and the ones I hold close,

to embrace them and bask in the warm glow of their love.

Comfort I find in each and every one of them when I'm blue.


When this is all over...

Always will I acknowledge,

the wonderful feeling of freedom I relish,

too often we forget the rights and liberty we are given,

the ability to go other places and see mind blowing things.


When this is all over...

I will be thankful to the NHS, my family and everyone in this amazing complex world.


Monday: WAGOLL

Based on the poem above. Can you find examples of:

  • When an ellipsis has been used?
  • adjectives
  • alliteration
  • Fronted adverbials
  • hyperbole


Tuesday: Ellipsis

Quesion of the day: What sort of word is buzzing?

What is an ellipsis?

An ellipses is used to show a pause in time or to create suspense.


Can you add ellipsis to these sentences?

  1. Slowly, we crept on into the dark cave.
  2. He carefully opened the container and discovered loads of coins!
  3. "Do you think you're ready? I just don't know if!" stammered Tom.
  4. The review states: "I enjoyed the film immensely it's perfect family fare."


Answer the questions above before scrolling down to find the answers:






Can you create three sentences using ellipsis in each?


Wednesday: Alliteration

What does acknowledge mean?


Can you spot the odd sentence?

The terrible tiger tore his toenail.

No not now Nelly.

The huge bear ripped off the door and entered the house.

Beautiful butterflies’ bicker blatantly.


Why is that sentence the odd one out?

Can you make it a sentence which has alliteration?

Alliteration is the repetition of the same letter or sound in nearby words.


Complete these sentences by adding alliteration:

I really didn't want _________________.

This morning I ___________________.

Dear ________, Diana ___________________.


Now come up with a minimum of 3 sentences that you can use in your poem:

Example: I will never forget the feeling of freedom.


Can't you beat Mr Dudley:

My mother munches mischievously on monster munch.

Can you beat 6 words with the same letters/sounds in one sentence?


Thursday: Fronted adverbials

What does complex mean?

Can you explain to your parent/guardian/carer what a fronted adverbial is?


These fronted adverbials were using in the poem above:

For granted I will no longer take,

I will appreciate,

Always will I acknowledge,


Can you create your own fronted adverbials to complete the following sentences:


______________________________, the sound of dogs barking and children playing.

____________________,to the people that are going out of their way to protect other.

_____________________________________, the love of my family and friends.

How will you feel? Elation, happy....

What different things will you smell? The smell of salt at the sea side.

Music: Flutes


Dear Parent/Guardian

Your child was having a Flute lesson at school once a week. Although they are not able to play the instrument as it remains at school, there are still things they can do at home to help them get better at music.  

Below is a link to some musical activities that they can do. Please have a go and encourage your child to join in – you may even want to do them as a whole family.  


Activity for this week:   https://youtu.be/3RtGhGvbRmQ
