Poetry Week 5-9 October 2020 The children celebrated Poetry Week in the week beginning 5th October 2020. They really enjoyed listening to, appreciating and writing their own poetry.

This is what the children said:


The children in Nursery have all been learning nursery rhymes as part of an introduction to National Poetry week.

RJ - Samuel - "A poet writes poems."

Year 1C:

Emily M said, "I have enjoyed learning the traditional poem 'Two Little Kittens' and writing a poem about my grandma."

“I liked the poems because it was fun with kennings. I enjoyed listening to Mrs Oliver read poems.” Oliver G

Year 3/4C

Luke J - Poetry week was really good because kennings are fun to write and to try and work out the riddle when others read theirs.  We listened to some funny poems which made us all laugh and we wrote our own poems describing autumn.  My autumn poem is one of my best pieces of writing ever!

Elissa W - I really enjoyed poetry week because we got to write our own poems and listen to some funny poems (like 'Walking with my Iguana'.  We also had to learn and perform a poem too.  It was also great fun to try and guess what the kennings were about.
