5B's Blog: 5B are Beautiful, Brainy and Brilliant!

The Jabberwocky Home Learning 1.12.10

Due Friday 14th December

In Literacy we have been looking at Lewis Carroll's "The Jabberwocky".

JABBERWOCKY

By Lewis Carrol (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

 

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:

All mimsy were the borogoves,

  And the mome raths outgrabe.

 

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

  The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun

  The frumious Bandersnatch!"

 

He took his vorpal sword in hand:

  Long time the manxome foe he sought --

So rested he by the Tumtum tree,

  And stood awhile in thought.

 

And, as in uffish thought he stood,

  The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,

Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,

  And burbled as it came!

 

One, two! One, two! And through and through

  The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!

He left it dead, and with its head

  He went galumphing back.

 

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?

  Come to my arms, my beamish boy!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'

  He chortled in his joy.

 

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;

All mimsy were the borogoves,

  And the mome raths outgrabe.

 

Answer the seven questions on the sheet in your red literacy books.

Draw the Jabberwocky. Write a short (one paragraph) description of the Jabberwocky. Describe what it looks like, how it moves and how it behaves. We will be looking at these in class on Friday and I will be checking how creative you can be with  your drawing and description, and if you have been as careful as you can be with how you have presented this piece of work.
