Each teacher is teaching a different style of poetry. See below for an outline of the fun and exciting lesson that each teacher is taking. You will also find some photos of the students performing rap in Miss Sunderland's class.
Mrs Foudoulis - This term in poetry we are learning to write diamante poems. These poems are seven lines long with a set format it goes one word noun, two words adjectives, three words actions, four words nouns, three words actions, two words adjectives and one word noun (It has to be the opposite of the first line).
Mr Mathew - Shape Poetry- A Shape Poem is a type of poetry that describes an object and is shaped the same as the object the poem is describing. Students will be choosing different objects to do with the Olympics and writing poems that match that shape.
Miss Tarlington - In poetry rotation we are looking at imagery poetry so the children use four of their senses to describe images or objects. In the lesson we played a game where one child had to use adjectives and similies to describe a hidden object to the rest of the class. Then we looked at different images and used our senses to write sentences describing them.
Ms Robertson Smith - This term in poetry we are learning to write Cinquain Poems. Cinquain Poems are fun and are only five lines long. The poetry is based on syllables and has a title, description, action, feeling and another word for the title. See below for some wonderful examples that the students have produced already.
Mrs McCumber - In poetry rotations the students will be looking at Limericks. We discuss the structure of a Limerick including its rhythm and how Limericks are usually quite funny or silly. The students then try to write their own Limerick focusing on rhyming and rhythm.
