Year 4 presented a very powerful assembly to the rest of the school based around the celebration of National Poetry Day. We explained to our other friends throughout the school how poetry could contain many different styles. Some of these may be incredibly serious such as the Shakespeare Sonnets; more contemporary poetry can be very funny. We shared a selection of our favourite pieces of poetry during the assembly.
The pupils have been working in pairs during class time on writing their own poetic works. We wanted to see how a similar theme could inspire some very different pieces of work. Using the idea of stars in the sky as our springboard, each pair then worked together on producing a poem.
You can listen to this work being explained in the podcast below.
