noun phrases

Below is my video link explaining noun phrase task for Monday.


Read and listen to MACAVITY: THE MYSTERY CAT. Analyse the features of the poem (lines/stanzas/rhyming)  Next, discuss what the performers do to enhance the effectiveness of the poem.


Can you read your poem aloud to an adult- if you are really brave, you could rehearse it and video it then upload to Seesaw!

For those feeling less brave (and those who want extra today) a task has been set on SPAG.Com- please log in and complete in the usual way.
