The lessons are based on 'The Jumblies' nonsense poem, by Edward Lear. All lesson resources, differentiated activities, answers and planning are provided as part of the pack.
Lesson 1: Reading the poem and identifying various key features, including discussing the story of the poem and picking out aspects of the poetic style. The children can then complete a set of questions about the structure and style of the poem plus an extension to rewrite a verse, using a supporting guide sheet if necessary.
Lesson 2: Fully differentiated reading comprehension session, based on the poem. The lesson begins with a review of key comprehension skills and some sample questions to look at together. Then there are different levels of comprehension worksheets for independent work - answers are also included!
There is differentiation built into both lessons, with challenge tasks and activity support for those who need it.
The flexibility of the lessons means that I have been able to use them in Years 4 to 6, but it could also be easily adapted for younger children.
Please note: some video links are included in the sessions, which should always be assessed for suitability prior to use!
*Teacher PowerPoint presentation
*4 differentiated comprehension task sheets (lower, middle and higher ability); all answers also provided
*Extra verse writing guide (2 versions)
*Text version of the poem
