Compliment Poems

During social isolation, it is hard not being able to see loved ones – both family and friends. One thing you can do is send them a letter – with a complimentary difference!


Letters are especially lovely because, unlike a text message, phone-call, or video call, you can put them into a box and look at them again and again. Think how lovely it would be to receive a complimentary acrostic poem made especially for you from someone you love! Create individualised ‘Acrostic Poems’ for YOUR grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends etc. so you can stay connected through the power of complimenting!


Share a photograph of your completed poem on our class blog!


English - Learn about the key features of a sentence and use them correctly in your writing.

Come and See

When the day of Pentecost came, all the believers were gathered together in one place. Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong and powerful wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak There were Jews living in Jerusalem, religious people who had come from every country in the world. When they heard this noise, a large crowd gathered.

They were all excited, because all of them heard the believers talking in their own languages.  In amazement and wonder they exclaimed, ‘These people who are talking like this are Galileans! How is it, then, that all of us hear them speaking in our own native languages?

We are from many different countries yet all of us hear them speaking in our own languages about the great things that God has done!’

Amazed and confused, they kept asking one another,

‘What does this mean?’ But others made fun of the believers, saying, ‘These people are drunk!’

Then Peter stood up with the apostles and in a loud voice began to speak to the crowd:

‘Fellow-Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, listen to me and let me tell you what this means.

These people are not drunk, they are filled with God’s Holy Spirit instead, this is what the prophet Joel spoke about:

God says: ‘I will pour out my Spirit on everyone and they will proclaim my message.’

Awe and wonder came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles.

Based on Acts 2: 1-18, 43


  • Why were the friends of Jesus hidden away when the crowds were celebrating in Jerusalem?
  • Why do you think that the coming of the Holy Spirit was likened to strong wind and tongues of fire?


Make a collection of all the words in the passage which describe people who are bursting with energy or have no energy. 



PSHE - Giving compliments

It is important to give compliments.  Compliments are when we notice the good things about other people.  Compliments make other people feel good – this then makes us feel good.  When we give someone a compliment we use a friendly tone of voice and look at the other person.  This makes the other person feel good – this then makes us feel good.

Take a look at some of the compliments below.  How many compliments can you give to the people in your house today?
