The children have played with words today, writing their own poetry with the theme change. They voted for their favourite poem of the day – Louder! By Roger Stevens, after teachers read a selection throughout the day. Oak class accessed a live poetry lesson from the BBC, and were ecstatic when their school name appeared across the screen. Birch class created a colourful poetry river and Hazel class enjoyed exploring spaghetti, collecting describing words after reading the poem ‘Spagetti Spagetti’ by Jack Prelutsky. In house teams they played rhyming games that reception and nursery had practised earlier in the day. At the end of the day they all got a letter from the poetry post and this can be enjoyed at home.
