Today is the Friday Maths Challenge, which you will find on the White Rose website.
Activity 5: ‘The Door’
In this session, we are going to consider the importance of fluency and expression when we read. Begin by reading Miroslav Holub’s poem The Door. You may like to listen to these two contrasting performances:
★ Decide which reading you prefer and why and jot down your response.
Now make some notes on the poem:
a. What did you like about the poem? What was your favourite line and why?
b. How did the poem make you feel?
c. Which line in the poem did you find the most interesting and why?
d. Are there any parts of the poem that leave you with unanswered questions?
e. What questions would you like to ask the poet, Miroslav Holub?
★ Decide how you would perform this out loud and have a go at performing at home.
