Good morning Year 6, how did you find 'The Jabberwocky' yesterday? From the emails I received, I think some of you may have found the poem difficult to understand, but that is good, believe it or not! This is because today it is going to get easier.

Your daily tasks in English and Maths are as follows:

English - Today, you are going to continue with your work from yesterday. Hopefully, you read the poem, answered some questions about it and began to think about what some of the nonsense words might mean.

Here is an explanation of some of the key words found in the poem. Read it carefully and replace each nonsense word (that you can) with a modern version. For example:

Brillig - 4 o'clock - It was 4 in the afternoon

This sheet describes portmanteau words - these can be found within the poem, but what are they?

Hopefully now, you understand what the Jabberwocky is about. Using all of this information, I would like you to rewrite this poem but a modern version.

Maths - How did you find measuring and calculating angles yesterday? I hope that the WhiteRose webpage is useful to your learning. Refer to lesson 4 today - Introduce angles. Complete the accompanying activity and finish any activities not completed yesterday.
