Week Commencing 1st December 2014 - Poetry and Rhyme

Welcome back to Holly Class page!



In English this term we have been looking at Poetry and Rhyme. We have looked at lots of rhyming books, nursery rhymes and a variety of poems to inspire us. We have also learnt about similies which has helped us when writing our own poems about the season of Winter. The children were introduced to an acrostic poem and were challenged to think of something beginning with each letter to write a sentence. We had a go at one together as a class and then the children had their own poem to create. The children are fast becoming very creative in their written work and have produced some fantastic poems. Here are a few examples of their acrostic poems:


W ooly hats are on in winter

I gloos are as cold as snow

N obody plays in the rain

T rees are bare

E verybody plays in the snow

R un in the puddles

By Tommy

By Miguel
