For World Book Day, Year 6 looked at the medium of poetry.
Our first lesson was a comprehension on the poem Fireworks by Enid Blyton. The children were challenged to solve whose point of view the poem was from and to investigate the use of similes to understand how the family dog felt about the loud noises outside.
After break, the children got creative and began writing their own monster poems! Using any form of poetry they liked, the classes told a story about their choice of monster – warts and all! Mr Murtagh was even inspired to write about a monster that sounded very similar to the children in Year 6…
Finally, we added some art to our day – the children reimagined some classic book covers with a new design. Classics by Roald Dahl, the Harry Potter Series and some personal favourites were given the Parish makeover into modern masterpieces!
