Today, we will continue to explore poems. Please see the separate activities based around the animal poems ‘If You Should Meet a Crocodile’ and ‘The Vulture’.

An adult can read the poems first and then try to answer the questions together. Highlight and write down the rhyming words in The Vulture poem. BBC Bitesize has a short video about ‘What are rhyming words?’ if you need a reminder.

Print off or draw a picture of either the crocodile or vulture and write words and short phrases. You can record your work in your home school sharing book, an exercise book or a notebook. An adult may need to help create a writing frame in your books.

When writing, remember to think it, say it, like it, write it and read it again. 

Choose your writing peak challenge below.

See separate maths activities to practise doubling.

This includes a learning reminder, two levels of practice sheet, guidance if you get a bit stuck and a few questions to check your understanding. All the answers are provided so that you can ‘tick or fix’ your work with an adult.  


If you have no access to a printer at home, draw/write answers in home school sharing book, exercise book or a notebook.

Quick recall of doubles can be practised by playing the Hit the Button game at If your child is very confident with doubling numbers to 10, they could try doubling from 5-15 or 10-20.
