Good morning! Today's poem is an extract from The Jumblies by Edward Lear.
by Edward Lear
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live.
Their heads are green,
And their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a sieve.
Good morning Key Stage One! Here are a few characters from some of my favourite picture books.
What can you tell about their character from how they look and what they are doing? How are they feeling? What makes you think that?
When you write your answer in your yellow home learning book, make sure that you use because!
Gruffalos...try not to use happy or sad.
I think that the witch is cheerful because she is smiling.
Today we are going to be working on our reading comprehension. Most of the Gruffalos will be able to read this text independently, but Superworms and Tiddlers might like to get a grown-up or an older brother or sister to read it to them.
There are 3 levels of questions, so think carefully about which level you want to have a go at. Don't worry if it's too tricky, just choose a different level.
REMEMBER! Read the text first, then read the questions thinking about the key words. Gruffalos might want to have a go at answering the questions in their yellow home learning book.
Good morning Key Stage One! Here is today's Poem of the Day. This poem uses alliteration which is when you use words that begin with the same letter or sound.
Have any of your teeth fallen out yet? Can you learn this poem off by heart? Can you write your own poem using alliteration?
I jiggled it
jaggled it, jerked it.
I pushed it,
and pulled and poked it.
As soon as I stopped
and left it alone,
this tooth came out
on it’s very own!
