Week 6 - 11.5.20

For Week 6 home learning in English we have combined video clips and written work but please remember that it is not always necessary to print off the work if you don't have the facilities to at home. Read the questions from a screen and discuss them with your child or ask your child to write out the questions on to paper. This would benefit their handwriting skills as well smiley

Listen to Miss White read the funny poem 'Twas Midnight.
Explain unusual words – ‘twas means it was; a streetcar is a tram.
Discuss all the funny things that don't go together in the poem (cars in the ocean; a barefoot child wearing shoes, etc.)
