I hope you enjoyed the poetry yesterday. Today you are going to be reading two poems, both about animals. You will then complete the following tasks:

Task 1- You will compare the poems. How are they similar?Which do you like best ? Why?

Task 2- Once you have read The Vulture, you will then identify all the rhyming words. Then sort the rhyming words in the box on the activity sheet into the right section.

Task 3- Pick either the picture of the vulture or the picture of the crocodile. Stick the picture in the middle of a big piece of paper and label the parts of the animal. Remember to use adjectives (sharp, long, big) and short phrases to describe the use of that feature ( sharp claws to hold things).

Staying safe

As so many of you are learning to ride your bikes with and without stablilisers, I thought it would be good for us to learn about bicycle safety.

Why do you need to wear a helmet when riding bike?

Helmet experiment

You will need:

• 1 egg
• 1 cup with a lid
• Enough water to fill the cup half way

Step 1

Fill the cup half full with water.

Step 2

Place the egg in the cup.

Step 3

Shake the cup.

What do you observe about the egg? What is the water doing for the egg?

Step 4

Now remove the water from the cup but leave the egg in the cup.

Step 5

Shake the cup again.

What do you observe about the egg?

This is why it is important for you to wear a helmet especially when you are riding on the footpath next to roads or on roads.
