Limerick Challenge

 

Recently in class you were learning about limericks and you came up with some fantastic ideas. 

 

Your challenge this week is to try and create your own limerick/s based on a theme of your choice. A limerick is a style of poem so you could also use it to enter the competition above. Some ideas of themes could be Paddington, Antony Gormley or your favourite sporting hero. 

 

Someone who works in the Tate art gallery has created a limerick about different artists. Here are two verses from it to inspire you: 

 

Picasso said, "Yes, it is true, 

My paintings were all red and blue, 

But then I displayed

A picture I made

From more than just one point of view. (Thank you.)" 

 

Dali had talent so rare

His tash could stick up in the air

His art was a fusion 

Of dream and illusion 

And very unique facial hair. 

 

John Hughes

Week One

 

This week was supposed to be our last week of our work on discussion. We had discussed fake news and why some people make this. We had also looked at ways we can identify if news is true or fake.

 

If you would like to work on your discussion skills then why not try discussing some of the current topics, such as the need to self-isolate and to be 2m apart from each other.

 

Other topics that could be discussed are:

  • School uniform
  • Social media
  • Looking after the environment

 

Remember though, it is a discussion not an argument!
