Today we had a brilliant day listening to, writing and performing poetry. This morning we had an assembly where we listened to (and helped!) Ian Bland perform some of his poems. We all thought they were really funny and exciting. After that, we took part in a workshop with Ian where we were focusing on the poem ‘I’d like to be a…’ . We worked together to come up with different vocabulary which would fit the rhyming and syllable patterns. We were then paired up to complete our own versions of the poem and to come up with some accompanying actions. We had a great time writing our poems. Some of us were then chosen to perform them in our final assembly, we were all really eager to share them with the rest of the school. It has been a great day and we have all been inspired to write some more poems!
