Language, Literacy and Communication
A limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables and rhyme. The third and fourth lines should only have five to seven syllables; they too must rhyme For example,
There was a young girl from Maesteg,
Who insisted on bathing in egg,
She slid through the town,
In a stinky old gown,
Folk had to cover their nose with a peg.
Reading: Find your favourite examples of limericks and say why you liked them. What did you notice about the rhythm of limericks?
Writing: Have a go at writing your own limericks? Can you make them fit the rules? Can you make your limerick funny?
Oracy: Recite your own limerick with great expression with the aim to make your listeners laugh out loud!
Health and Wellbeing
In May we would usually be doing our ‘Daily Mile’ your challenge is to keep up your daily mile each day at home, whether it be a walk outside, around the garden, or going up and down the stairs. Further Challenge: Could you increase your mile to 5 km?
More children are going online in lockdown. How can we stay safe when we go online? Can you remember how to be a Google internet legend? Make a poster to show how children can stay safe online. Google Be Internet Legends has great advice if you are stuck for ideas.
A rap is a bit like a poem and a song combined. Can you invent your own rap to describe what you are up to at home? How you are feeling in lockdown? Your rap could be funny, sad, angry or all of these! Start with a beat or music that you like with a strong beat. Next write the lyrics. Then experiment with rapping your lyrics over the beat. You rap should use lots of rhyme and will be in the rhythm to the beat of the music.

Junk Recycling Project
Global Goals: supporting endangered wildlife
Mission: Can you create a home for bees and insects in your garden using bit of unwanted cardboard and plastic?
Gather the junk or rubbish that will be recycled, such as cardboard, plastic bottles, yoghurt pots, egg boxes, etc.

Decorate your bee/insect house. Give your house/hotel a name.
Try to take a photo or draw your design.
Be proud of all the wildlife you have helped to live.
