On Thursday 7th October we celebrated
NATIONAL POETRY DAY.
We listened to James Berry's poem called Childhood Tracks and
were inspired to use our senses to create our own poem.
We walked around our school grounds
looking, listening and smelling
what was around us and shared our ideas.
We then put these ideas into a poem called
and we drew illustrations for it too!
We really enjoyed learning about poetry and had lots of fun listening to
different types of poems read by the poets themselves
which we found on the Children's Poetry Archive website.
A theme that will be running through everything we do this year is
We know that these last few months have seen families go through a mixture of experiences and these will result in a variety of emotions. To help all of our children understand and begin to share these feelings we are introducing the story The Colour Monster and using this character to represent the different feelings we can have.
There is an electronic copy of the book below and more information about the
Wellbeing activities we will be doing.
