Can you think carefully about the adjectives (describing words) and the nouns
(names of objects, people or places), that the poet has used.
Can you illustrate the poem? Illustrate each line, in turn.
Make your illustration as colourful as possible, taking care that it includes everything from the poem.
Challenge 2 –Recognising Poetry Structures and Handwriting
Can you re-read the poem
In your best handwriting can you copy out the poem, exactly as it appears on the page.
Remember, when you are handwriting, to form your letters correctly.
Tall letters reach up to the sun, small letters sit on the boat, and water letters, dip their toes in the sea.

What type of calculation did you do to answer the questions?
Compare and order numbers
I know that 32 is smaller than 76, because 32 only has 3 tens, and 76 has 7 tens.
use more than (>) and less than (<) symbols when comparing numbers.
For example, write
See your "To do's" on Purple Mash.
