YR6 Eagle Class News @FP

This week in Eagle class @FP, on the run up to the National Poetry Day (5th October 2023), we have been reading several poems with the class. We decided what we wanted our poems to be about and determined the best format for the chosen topics. It was interesting exploring words, rhymes and rhythm before writing the poems, thinking particularly about the impact we wanted to have on the reader. The most important part for some of the children was evaluating each other's poem after they were performed. The children were able to articulate strengths and possible improvements. Most of the poems painted visual pictures, focused on the main idea or told a different story. Here are some examples.
