World Poetry Day was celebrated in Year 3 with a series of powerful performance poems! We introduced the children to pieces of work that required some actions and sounds. The words were expressive, but they needed a little boost to bring the poems to life.
Working in small groups, the children spent a minimum amount of time in coming up with some suitable physical and verbal accompaniments. We thought about what the message in the poem might be, and how the words can become more powerful with the correct actions.
You can watch a first run through of our Year 3 poetry in the video above.
