Poetry

Picture 1
In literacy, we have been learning how to become poets like James Reeves. We have learned to recite the poem 'The Sea' by James Reeves off by heart with actions (video to follow shortly). We have looked at the structure, rhyme, repetition and metaphor in this poem. We have now written our own versions of this poem - but using a rainforest instead of the sea! As you can see, we have also started turning our own classroom into our own rainforest, complete with creeping, coiling vines and the various sounds of the rainforest canopy!
