Acrostic Poems

This morning we worked in groups to write an acrostic poem based on the word “light.” Acrostic poems are simple poems in which each the first letter of each line forms a word or phrase (vertically). We chose this word because we are learning about lighthouses and 2011 is the “Year of Light” festival in Arbroath to celebrate the bi-centenary of the Bell Rock Lighthouse.

Once we had written our poems, we had to make a poster with the poem and illustrations and present it to the class. Everyone worked really hard, co-operated well in their groups and did a great job!
