English – Wednesday 17th June 2020
Hello again, well done for making it half way through the week! For today’s English lesson, you will need to read/watch the rest of chapter 7 ‘Miss Honey from 55 minutes and 55 seconds to 1 hour, 9 minutes and 51 seconds. In this part of the chapter, we are learning about Matilda’s extraordinary brain and all the amazing things she has taught herself so far. She also creates the following limerick (poem) to describe Miss Honey.
‘The thing we all ask about Jenny
Is, ‘Surely there cannot be many
Young girls in the place
With so lovely a face?’
The answer to that is, ‘Not any!’’
For today’s activity, I would like you to create your own poem for either Matilda or Miss Honey. It doesn’t have to be a limerick, but I have attached a poster that describes how to write a limerick if you wish to use it.
Please send us your poems as we would love to hear them! You could even read them to us in a video!
Parents – Please note that the video link may have adverts.
