Year 2 Reading challenge Summer 2

Hi Year 2! This half term your ‘Reading Challenge’ is based on a funny poem by Carol Ann Duffy.
The laugh of your class
Your class laughs like fourteen birds
in a tree.
Your class laughs like ice in a glass
on a tray.
Your class laughs like the stars
in the Milky Way.
Ha ha ha ha ha ho ho hee hee.
Your class laughs like the horn
of a bright red car.
Your class laughs like the strings
on a loud guitar.
Your class laughs like the harmony
of a choir.
Ho ho ho ho ho hee hee ha ha.
Your class laughs like the hiss
of skis on snow.
Your class laughs like the screams
at a circus show.
Your class laughs like a trumpet player’s
blow.
Hee hee hee hee hee ha ha ho ho.
Your class laughs like fourteen seals
in the sea.
Your class laughs like a drunken
chimpanzee.
Your class laughs like the buzz
of a honey bee.
Ha ha ha ha ha ho ho hee hee.
Your class laughs like the mighty
ocean’s roar.
Your class laughs like carol singers
at the door.
Your class laughs like an elephant
wearing a bra.
Ho ho ho ho ho hee hee ha ha.
Your class laughs like doh ray me
fa so.
Your class laughs like seven dwarfs sing
hi ho.
Your class laughs like blue whales
when they blow.
Hee hee hee hee hee ha ha ho ho.
Ha ha ha ha ha ho ho hee hee.
Ho ho ho ho ho hee hee ha ha.
Hee hee hee hee hee ha ha ho ho.
