Tuesday 12th May

Good morning on this Terrific Tuesday!

  

I've been checking my seedlings.          Mrs T has read the story of The Dragon of Brog

Unfortunately I forgot to label them!     for you. Such a great story!  Really made me

So I have no idea what is growing now!    chuckle! You can listen to it here.

This is a type of list poem called a Kenning. The word Kenning ceoms from the Anglo-Saxons who enjoyed playing word games, a bit like riddles and it means "describe." For instance, a milk-lapper = a cat.

This poem is all about the sea. Can you think of any other kenning names for the sea? and for a cat?

 

Have a look at the attached sheet, read the Kennings, see if you can guess which animal they are describing.  (There is a clue sheet too if you get stuck!)
