Home Learning Task Week 6

Kiwi Team Home Learning - Weeks 5 - 6, Term 2

Your time to rhyme!

There aren’t many authors who have new books published when they are more than a hundred years old - but they’re not Dr Seuss. We are setting you a poetry challenge. Here it is, conveniently set to rhyme:

It’s too cold to bask,
It’s too wet to play,
so we have set you a task
on this cold, cold grey day.
Please write us a rhyme,
it doesn’t have to be long,
or take much of your time.
You can’t get it wrong!

It’s as simple as that! Just remember, Dr Seuss is famous for revolutionising children’s literature by using a limited selection of easy words. The Cat in the Hat only uses 220 different words throughout the whole book - and none of them are more than five letters long except for the word “SHOULD”.

If you’re lost for ideas, how about starting from the title of the new Dr Seuss book - What Pet Should I Get? Or you can look for inspiration from your favourite Dr Seuss story, whether it’s Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish or How the Grinch Stole Christmas! So do get rhyming!

Due: Tuesday 2nd June (After Queen’s Birthday Weekend)
