The theme for National Poetry Day this year was, “Freedom”. In P1/2 we decided to look at the freedom we have to play and how fortunate we are to live where we do and have wonderful experiences right on our doorstep. This can clearly be seen in the beautiful photos sent in to help us with this! Thank you! The P1 children used their photo to complete the, “Freedom is…” sentence. P2 wrote acrostic poems to share their thoughts. The photos and poems are displayed in the dining area so please go and have a look when you are in for your parent appointments next week.
We also really enjoyed listening to the poem, “I Opened A Book” by Julia Donaldson and we have spoken about what the poem is trying to tell us about using our imaginations when we are reading. The class enjoyed sharing their favourite book with a talking partner and drew and wrote about where their imaginations take them.
