‘The Owl and the Pussy-Cat’ poem

Wednesday: Read the classic nonsense poem ‘The Owl and the Pussy-Cat’ by Edward Lear (above). Listen to it being read at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpwAP36-w7E. Some of the language is tricky – create your own glossary for this poem (you can use a thesaurus or the internet to help you).

Thursday: ‘The Owl and the Pussy-Cat’ is a nonsense poem. Learn about nonsense poetry by watching https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z4mmn39/articles/zgbyw6f. Write your own nonsense poem in the same style as ‘The Owl and the Pussy-Cat’. Why not choose two different animals?

Friday: Learn the poem by heart. Use the rhyming pattern to help you. Perform it aloud for someone at home. We’ll try to do it together on Teams on Monday.



Writing tasks (all 3 days)

Images for setting description



Our new Geography topic is South America. Use an atlas or the internet to draw a map of South America – can you label all the different countries? For an extra challenge, also label the capital cities of each country.



You are going to create some Mola art, which originated in Panama, South America. It is extremely colourful art, usually based on an animal.  You can read about it here and see an example: https://kidworldcitizen.org/create-a-mola-folk-art-from-panama/ and watch a tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?app= desktop&v=SBWJMLitF1w



Start our new Science topic by learning how to describe different materials and analyse objects in your home. See the lesson, video links and tasks in this pdf: Exploring the properties of materials



Wednesday: What are your New Year’s Resolutions? Write them down and make a plan for how you can achieve them.

Thursday: Make a list of things that you think are good for your mental health. Can you rank them in order of importance, or group them into activities you do hourly/daily/weekly?

Friday: Use these leaflets to give you ideas for some acts of kindness to others – info leaflet, leaflet template.
