Reading & English

Today's English and reading is based on a poem called 'Aliens Stole my Underpants' by Brian Moses.


Start by reading the poem with a grown up, you can do this independently, through shared reading or you can have the poem read to you. When you have read the poem, have a go at answering the comprehension questions. You can write these in your home learning book or you can talk about them with a grown up.


For the English task you will be writing a character description of what you think the alien is like. Start by drawing a picture of how you imagine the alien and label it with words to describe its personality and appearance. Then, try to organise your writing by writing about the alien's personality first and then about its appearance.


This story, 'Aliens Love Underpants', might help you with your description.
