This week is Children’s Mental Health Week. Make sure you take some time out for yourself to relax, reflect and ‘Express Yourself’ by sharing feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through things like art, writing, music, dance and baking. We hope that by doing things that make you feel good, you can improve your mental health, especially when facing tough situations or difficult times. smiley

Today, you are going to mind map ideas for an Ella cinquain. Read Ella’s story (in Learning Resources). We are continuing from where we left off last week – Ella winning a talent contest.  


Focus on the last slide. This will be the starting point for our cinquain. Mind map as many words or phrases as you can about Ella and her voice and music, using the picture to help you. The more you have to choose from, the better your poem will be tomorrow.  To write an excellent cinquain, you need a range of words: 


  • ADJECTIVES (describing words) 

  • VERBS (interesting ones!) 

  • FEELING words
