Since half term, the Year 5 class have learnt about the free verse poems by Michael Rosen and Roger McGough. We created our own ‘working wall’ to feature the different poems each member of the class looked at.
Some of the children are now writing free verse poems for their entry into the Royal Norfolk Show poetry competition!
Phase 2 pupils have been writing about what those mischievous monkeys might get up to in the classroom when everyone has gone home for the night.
See more of their work here.
This term Years 3 and 4 have been reading stories from ‘The Greek Myths’ during their English lessons.
During their art lessons we have created collage art work based on the story of Icarus – the boy who flew too close to the sun. All pictures had to include a sun, the sea and Icarus. All the artwork can be seen on display outside the Year 3 classroom. See more Year 3 and Year 4 work here.
This term’s poetry competition had the theme of ’Remember’. There were a lot of very good entries which made judging a difficult task, but the poem deemed to be the most successful and original was by Charlotte S in Year 9. Charlotte’s poem, ‘Remember’, told a well-paced story with emotional as well as narrative content.
Darci Sheppard-Mobbs was placed as runner-up, as was Skyla-Grace Manning in the Prep School. The poems written by Sophie Barrow, Rebekah Young, Aisling Kendall, Lauren Barlow-Hunter, Gabriella Moretti-Miles and Ella Kassulke were highly commended.
All these poems are currently displayed in the English department.
Well done to everyone who entered, and look out for the next poetry competition!
