Autumn 1 Week 3 – Poetry

Stars of the Week: Caitlin and Krislyn

We are reading Oliver and the Seawigs by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre as our class text this term. This week, the class worked in pairs to write some fantastically frightening list poems to describe a setting from the story. Well done Krislyn and Caitlin for writing and performing your poem with so much energy and creativity!

Soon the poems will be on display along with these brilliant illustrations of the ‘sea monkeys’ in the book! Watch this space to see our finished display.

‘A Rambling Isle’ by Cailtin and Krislyn:

Dark and sacred temple, spooky too with the creep of the snakes.
Gigantic plants were growing off the rambling isle.
Peering out of the temple there are bugs and snakes.
A temple towered at the top with snakes peering through the window.
It is huge and very scary with lots of rocks and trees.
There are all sorts of things scattered about.
Growing roots, lots of skulls and ruins.
There is an abandoned tomb in the middle that looks gloomy.
It was like halloween.
It is very tall and big. Don’t go in it!
Scary faces with mouths looked at you.
Don’t go in it!

Next week in Class 3, we will be learning to use and understand map symbols, and use a key when reading a map.
