Reading and English


Today's work is based on a poem called On Some Other Planet by John Rice and it follows on from the work about aliens that you did on Friday.


Start by reading the poem either independently, as shared reading or a grown up can read it to you. Make sure that you understand all the vocabulary in the poem. You might need to read it a couple of times to understand the rhythm of the poem.


There is some grammar work on nouns, verbs and adjectives and a piece of writing to complete. You do not need to print out the pages, you can do the writing tasks on paper or in your home learning book. Remember to check your spellings and make sure that you punctuate your sentences accurately.

Here is a story that might help you with your work today. It's called Here Come the Aliens by Colin McNaughton, I hope you enjoy it.
