Phonics - here's links to the lessons we will be learning this week




English - Listen to and enjoy the poem 'T'was the night before Christmas': https://www.literacyshed.com/nightbeforechristmas.html

There are a lot of nouns in this poem. Can you remember what a noun is? A naming word - a name of a place, person, object or feeling.


Look at this extract - can you find the nouns?..


And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!







Why not also log into Oxford Owl and read a few book on there:


Why not have a go at making your own Christmas decorations and Christmas cards!
