Year 2 and 3 have been reading and writing poems around the theme of space this term. We have all enjoyed learning more about space through poetry as well as practising our rhyming, riddle skills and limerick writing.
We had a poetry reading session where the children could stand up in front of the class and read aloud some of their poems as well as discuss how they wrote them (like a real life poetry reading!) Some children performed poems as a group with musical (or rap) accompaniment.
The children who did partake did so very confidently and were very articulate in reading and discussing their poetry. Our audience listened really well too!
