For Scots Week the Biggies have been listening to and reciting poems and writing their own. You can read the Poems, listen to the poets read them and see their illustrations on the Scots 2019 project page.
The Biggies took advantage of the good weather to take some photos in the playground this morning. We then wrote poems to go with them.
We have been reading the 5M Poetry Anthology . Their school in in Beijing in China!
Please read my class’s poetry and comment below. Inspired, in part, by @MichaelRosenYes @moses_brian @Jack_Prelutsky Spike Milligan and Lewis Carroll. (Some of these kids were beginner English in August) @WAB_LIVE https://t.co/E6rmQcgg4t

Back in April the Biggies wrote poems for the Kilsyth Rotary Club competition. The Primary 7’s recited their’s at their leavers assembly last week and did a great job.
The competition winners were Callum, Fergie, Zara and Aaliyah, but I think they are all great.
Kennings are an old type of poetry, the word ‘ken’ is related, these poems tell you about how you ‘ken’ something.

In sub zero temperatures (-7 according to my car) the Biggies went out to the playground to take some photos.
Back indoors they wrote lune poems and added them to the images. (A Lune is a poem with 3 words in the first line, five in the second and three in the third).
