Across the school, we wanted to celebrate the brilliance of poetry. Every year group, from Reception to Year 6, all looked a range of different poems creating different effects and atmosphere and used these to basis their own upon. The children watched videos of the poets reading out the poems, used videos, words and images to "capture, sift and sort" ideas and used drama to investigate different ideas and of course to perform their poems to the class after they had been written. This year's theme was all about "REFUGE".
