LO: To write engaging kenning's 

Read the document to learn more about what kenning's are and how they work.

   1) Have a go at the kenning quiz- please send us your results so we can see if we tricked you- some of them are harder than you think!

   2) Create your own kenning following the step-by-step plan, using the outline provided to create a suitable layout, finishing on a “What am I?” or variation.

   3) Use the S2S to improve your writing- remember, this is a poem but also a riddle, do your best to make it informative but also tricky for your teacher to work out…


For example, Miss Read: bookworm, art lover, drum player, dad dancer...

LO: Understand what Ramadan is and why it’s celebrated

This evening is the first evening of Ramadan, an important Muslim festival.

We would like you to take a read through the PowerPoint below and also take a look at the clip from the BBC website.

What key questions would you ask a person to know if they understood what Ramadan is any why it is celebrated?

Craft Activity:

Any candle or lantern was indicated for a symbol of hope to light the way from the darkness. Ramadan lanterns are decorative lanterns crafted specifically for the holy month. Look at the photos below of Ramadan lanterns.  You can make your own from paper or you could even design your own using recycled card or card board.

There is also a lantern paper template below if you would like to make one out of paper.
