Reading and English
- Read through the poem again. Practise reading it out loud so that you can hear the rhythm and the rhyme.
- The poem uses lots of descriptive language. Find and highlight all the adjectives. (I found 15). Then complete the ‘Adjective synonyms’ activity.
- On the other half of the sheet you will find a table with the months of the year. Think about what happens in each month and make some notes. Include adjectives and noun phrases associated with them. e.g. January - dark nights, February - Valentine’s Day, March - a hint of spring.
