English Activities

In English this week we are using the text 'Rumble in the Jungle' by Giles Andreae.


We have created a short activity for each day based on the story.

  • Day 1: We start the week exploring some different poems and actions that go with them.  Read each poem and practise using the actions.  The final poem has no actions....can you make some up yourself?  Send us a video of you acting out your version of the poem.
  • Day 2: Follow the Youtube link to explore the story Rumble in the Jungle.  Look out for rhyming words and for words with the suffix ing.  Can you use an ing word to describe each animal?
  • Day 3: Enjoy the story again and find as many ing words as you can for each animal. Can you write a verse for a poem?
  • Day 4: Using your best handwriting can you write up you poem and send us a copy for the class blog?  We have added some lovely animal paper for you to use.


Have fun and remember - email if you need us and please send photos and videos of your learning at home for our class blog to share with your teachers and your friends.
