Year 5 are really enjoying the start to our new Poetry unit. Our whole school will be entering poems to a nationwide competition in December, in association with the anthology 'I am the seed that grew the tree'. This beautiful anthology of nature poems has been commissioned by 'The National Trust' and contains 366 poems for each day of the year. We have been analysing some of these and experimenting with drama and writing activities to see how poets use personification, imagery and shape to write their poems. The children are now starting to use the ideas of the professional poets to write some 'first draft' ideas for their poems. We are very proud of the amazing work going on so far and look forward to seeing the completed competition entries. Watch this space!
