Hi Year 6,
Lots of you have been sending us your own riddles and they have been great! This week, could you have a go at finding and performing some tongue twisters. Mrs Denham asked her great aunt for her favourite tongue twister and it's a tricky one!
"Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter
But a bit of better butter will make my batter better
So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter"
English: A quick starter to get your brains ticking :)
Now let's read the next chapter of The Ickabog.
Today we would like you to write two short paragrahs: the first predicting what will happen if Major Beamish told the truth, and the second paragraph predicting what will happen in Major Beamish lied.
Leaver's Booklet: We're going to continue on the poem theme and today write a Kennings Poem. This is simple, but effective, poem where each line follows the same structure of 'Noun Verb'.
So for example, the beginning of a Kenning's Poem about a penguin might be:
Another beginnging for Mrs Denham might be:
Below is a structure you can follow, but if you prefer to choose your own verbs, go for it! Similarly to the haiku poem, a draft version before writing it up in neat might be a good idea.
