World Book Day Activities!

To celebrate World Book Day this year, we have been asked to perform a poem of our choice.

Michael Rosen is one of our favourite Authors and Poets, we are HUGE fans and love watching him perform his own poems. There are lots of examples of these on Youtube, such as Chocolate Cake, Strict, Michael's Big Book of Bad Things, to name a few! 

We found it really tricky to choose our favourite poem to perform in our school bubble, but in the end we chose 'Hand on the Bridge', a poem with an interesting rhythm, repetition, and opportunities to perform with our bodies. 

Please see below, our own version of Michael Rosen's 'Hand on the Bridge', as performed by our lovely Year 2 Bubble!

    Talk Homework:  Finish making your paper clock at home (just like you made one in school). You will need to cut your hour and minute hands and attach them with the split pin. Then add on the second set of numbers 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 etc to show the number of minutes in each interval. Now practise using it to tell the time quarter to and quarter past. If you can already do this try to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes.
