P2 Poets!!

This term, as part of our shared reading we have been learningĀ  about poetry. We have enjoyed listening to lots of different poems and have even been writing our own. The first poem we listened to was called ‘Carribean Counting Rhyme’ by Pamela Mordecai. We had to listen carefully to it with our eyes closed and imagine what we could see. Then we used paint and collage materials to create a carribean scene which reflected what we thought the poem was describing.

We also enjoyed writing our own verses to ‘Oh The World Must be Coming to an End’. We had fun singing our new verses…

We have written our own apple shape poems which are on display in our classroom:

Finally, we loved theĀ  poem ‘Monsters’ by Linda Hammond. We got to decorate our own purple monsters and then we used them to act out the poem . Some groups chose to mime what was happening in the poem, others got into character and acted out the poem and some groups worked together to read and perfom the poem.
