1. Read and learn a poem
Read Keep a poem in your pocket. Read it twice: the first time in your head and the second time out loud. What do you think it means? How could a poem stop you from being lonely?
Read Top tips for learning a poem by heart. Try memorising the poem, ‘Keep a poem in your pocket’.
2. Make a comparison between two poems
- Use your favourite poem from yesterday and one other poem.
- Pick the Compare Frame, the Contrast Frame or the Compare/Contrast Frame.
- Fill it in to compare or contrast the two poems. Use your frame to explain about the two poems to somebody else. Ask them which of the poems they prefer and whether they think the poems are mainly similar or mainly different.
3. Make illustrations
- Use any of the poems from yesterday (see Thursday file) and draw or make an illustration to go with it.

Listen to this classical piece named 'Carnival of the animals'. Its filled with music that was written to symbolise the animal on the screen. As we have been looking into animal classification can you decide which groups each animal would belong to? You can draw this in any way you would like but I will also add the classification sheet at the bottom if you would like it.
You don not need to listen to the whole thing- I personally feel that music and careful listening can be relaxing. So enjoy!
