Student Request: ‘Word Jungle’: Vocabulary Game

We had the game ‘Word Jungle’

embedded on this page,

but it was just TOO noisy.

Every time anyone opened our page,

they heard jungle drums

and monkeys chattering

and the neighbours were starting to complain 😉

I am going to make a collection of websites

that you might find passes the time on a rainy day.


Every year I ask the children in my class,

if you were an animal what animal would you be,

and why ?

We draw a picture of ourselves as that animal.

This results in some interesting self portraits.

Online I found an art activity where you can do something similar:

Draw a self portrait

and then make it even more original

by adding animal ears and tail etc.

Build Your Wild Self

What a summer! All that rain!

Here comes the rain again

It rained and rained and rained and rained,
The average was well maintained;
And when our fields were simply bogs,
It started raining cats and dogs.

After a drought of half an hour,
There came a most refreshing shower;
And then the queerest thing of all,
A gentle rain began to fall.

Next day ’twas pretty fairly dry,
Save for a deluge from the sky.
This wetted people to the skin,
But after that the rain set in.


Looking forward to a good September.

A sunny start to the new school term,

would be good.
