Planning our poetry
Our Talk for writing English topic this term is poetry. We have been learning the poem The Cave of Curiosity and we will be writing our own poems based on this.
Over the past few weeks we have been learning our class poem The Cave of Curiosity with actions. Last week we boxed up our own ideas for our own poem. The children learnt about abstract and common nouns to help them think up a creative title. We then spent sometime learning about alliteration and onomatopoeia and how we can include this in our poem. The children were also very good at thinking of ideas outside of the box. This week the children will write up their poems independently focusing on the structure and layout.
