Diagnostic Write - Instructions
Mr Godfrey wanted to see what we all ready knew when it comes to writing instructions so he asked us to write a set of instructions to make a cup of tea. Of course, we has a go at making one first.
Performing our short pattern poems...
Please watch the video below of our class sharing their final short pattern poems. Children have chosen to either write limericks, haiku, sonnet, acrostic or cinquain poems based on the given theme - water.
Each have practised how to learn their poem by memory and perform it for an audience. Enjoy!
Short Pattern Poems - Water
Today we got out of the classroom to enjoy the weather and to help inspire our poetry. Mr Godfrey gave us the theme for our poem as 'water' linking to nature and our Roman topic (aqueducts).
Published poems to follow shortly.
Short Pattern Poems - Haiku
Today we have been exploring short pattern poems with a particular focus on Haikus. Haikus usually are based on a theme of nature so we went outside to engage our senses to build a huge word bank to write our poems. Any excuse to kick the shoes off and sit in the sun.
Immersed in nature.
Narratives inspired by the Thieves of Ostia story where Flavia met Jonathan.
