Read and recite the The Spangled Pandemonium by Palmer Brown.
The spangled pandemonium
Is missing from the zoo.
He bent the bars the barest bit,
And slithered glibly through.
He crawled across the moated wall,
He climbed the mango tree,
And when the keeper scrambled up,
He nipped him in the knee.
To all of you a warning
Not to wander after dark,
Or if you must, make very sure
You stay out of the park.
For the spangled pandemonium
Is missing from the zoo,
And since he nipped his keeper,
He might just as soon nip you!
‘The Spangled Pandemonium’ is the work of Palmer Brown

Take out your best pens and draw what you think it might look like. I would use lots of glitter pens to make it super sparkly if you can. I can imagine it would look like a rainbow of colours.
Now you need to describe what your spangled pandemonium looks like. I would use lots of similes to make the writing really sparkle. Make sure you use capital letters, full stops and as many adjectives and describing words as you can.
