Monday 22nd June

Happy Monday Year 4,

 

I hope that you have had a lovely weekend. I have had a super time with my family. We went for an ice cream at Yummy Yorkshire and had a BBQ on Saturday evening. It was lovely to spend some time in the garden as the weather was better this weekend.  

 

As yesterday was Fathers Day, I cooked a nice Sunday lunch for Mr Martin and Harry and Jacob bought him presents and looked after him all day. I hope you all had a great time with the important men in your lives, whether this was your dad, grandad or uncle. 

 

We only have 4 weeks left until the summer break. I can't believe that it is nearly the end of the school year. What a strange year it has turned out to be. It still only seems two minutes since I welcomed you all into 3/4M.

 

I hope you enjoy the activities today and I sill speak yo you tomorrow. 

 

Love from

 

Mrs Martin

We will upload your new spellings tomorrow.

SPaG/ Writing

 

Today we will be writing some imaginary words. This will help us when we write our nonsense poem, tomorrow. 

Nonsense poetry does not always make sense. Poets will use made-up words alongside real words, and talk about made-up things like imaginary creatures.

It’s lots of fun to read and is usually very silly!

 

Watch the video clip attached below, of the poet Spike Milligan performing his famous nonsense poem called ‘On the Ning Nang Nong’.

Listen carefully and see if you can spot all the nonsense words he uses.

Activity 1

Now you have watched Spike Milligan read his nonsense poem, have a go at reading it again yourself. You can read quietly or out loud if you like.

Pay close attention to any silly or unexpected words.

When you've finished reading, write a list of all the nonsense words that Spike Milligan used in this poem.

Which nonsense word is your favourite and why?

Activity 2

You are going to write your own nonsense poem but first you need to create some of your own nonsense words and phrases.

Complete page 2 of this ‘Imaginary words’ activity sheet.

You can write your own definitions for question 3 if you don’t have anyone to swap with.

Top tip!

Don’t think too much! Write whatever words and phrases come into your mind. Make them interesting and funny to say.

Here are some ideas to get you started: bon jingle, fizzle stickle, fingle flop on the hipple hopper!
