This week we looked at the poem 'Alphabet Clouds'. We also watched a story by one of our favourite authors Eric Carle. It was called 'Little Cloud' and it was about the shapes clouds turn into when we look at them. We went outside to do a spot of cloud gazing and talked about what we could see in the clouds. Then we drew what we could see with chalk and sculpted our own clouds using cotton wool.
Keep an eye on this page as later in the week we will add our final draft with the children reading aloud their verse. Here is our work so far.
We hope you enjoy the poem our class have chosen to share with you. Da Beach 🏖 is being performed by the poet. The poem was written, inspired by her favourite place, during our work linked to the book ‘Here We Are- Notes for Living on Planet Earth 🌍. We’re very proud of her!
Plus slightly later than promised (sorry!) our whole class performance of Shakespeare’s Seven Ages of Man.
Emily and Sophie were inspired to write their own poem during their lunchtime
A majestic building even inside
People suppose it’s where the grey lady died
Now four houses; it used to be one
On the playground, children have fun
Although some teachers want to run
The hall is used for many things
Doctor Bywaters is our king
Ping pong, swimming and many more
Highfield Hall is sports galore
We learn new things every week
And sometimes we play hide and seek
This is our poem about Highfield Hall
but now we’re going to play with a ball
Year 4 (Miss Riley)
Today, we immersed ourselves in poetry. We especially liked listening to Jack and The Beanstalk from Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes. The children worked incredibly hard to focus on their senses and linked this to autumn. Take a look at some of our fabulous poems below!
