Today's English is based on the poem 'Skimbleshanks'. Skimbleshanks is a character in T. S. Eliot's book of poetry Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats and in Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Cats, which is based on Eliot's book. The character is portrayed as a bright and energetic orange tabby cat who lives and works on the mail trains. (Find the resource at the bottom of the page):
- Reading: read the first part of Skimbleshanks aloud. It's quite tricky to read when trying to keep a good rhythm! Have a go!
- Underline any tricky vocabulary and find the definitions if necessary.
- Listen to the two performances of the poem using the links. I think I know which one you will prefer, but why? What differences are there between the two readings?
- Written activity: Have a go at practising parenthesis. All the information you need to know is on the revision cards as part of the document. You are given 'suggested phrases' to help spark your own ideas.
