This week, we celebrated National Poetry Day in class and we loved it.
Our favourite poem is called:
Jump or Jiggle by Evelyn Beyer
Sea gulls glide
We worked in groups to learn the poem and then recited back to each other in small groups.
After that, Miss Varley told us about a very special competition that we could be a part of with Young Writers.
We have to submit a poem that we have written by ourselves about an animal and if we win, we will get published and be part of the Yorkshire and Humberside book.
We can’t wait to see if we are going to be famous!
We have started to write some riddles about animals, remembering to use expanded noun phrases (adjective, adjective noun) and similes (using like or as) to help us to describe the animals, real, wild or imaginary.
Let us know what you think about our riddles in the comment box below.
