National Poetry Day

Class 4 have been celebrating National Poetry Day!

 

We composed our own group poems using powerful metaphors about the Moon (linked to our Power of Reading book "Moon Man").

 

We then practised speaking our lines confidently, and our parents helped us to learn them by heart at home.

 

On National Poetry Day (Thursday 28th September 2017), we held an Open Air performance in our Play Park, using musical instruments ,

and even a few dance and gymnastic moves!

 

Class 3 were our lovely, polite audience and then we also enjoyed listening to them read poems they had written on the theme of Freedom.

 

What a great day!

Six Ways of Looking at the Moon

The Moon is a shiny, glistening tooth brightening up the pitch- black sky.
The Moon is a soft, circular pillow in a large, black tent.
The Moon is a luminous, gleaming, pink diamond lost in an endless palace.
The Moon is an ebony pen, dipped in a gloomy bowl of ink.
The Moon is a fluffy cushion on a dark-red, velvet bed.
The Moon is a curved, magical ring in an unfilled sky.

Six Ways of Looking at the Moon

The Moon is a crystal, diamond cave, floating in the starless sky.
The Moon is a silver coin, stuck and terrified in a deep, dark pocket.
The Moon is a glistening pebble, washed up on the shore from the deep sea, crashing through the waves.
The Moon is an ebony pen, dipped in a gloomy bowl of ink.
The Moon is a silver CD, playing a sad song in the inky sky.
The Moon is a shimmering sphere which bashes against the wild, raging rocks of the ocean.

Six Ways of Looking at the Moon

The Moon is a dazzling, sparkling sphere in a glistening, murky space.
The Moon is a silver-fish, lost in the abyss ...
The Moon is a glimmering sphere, in an ebony sink-hole.
The Moon is a huge, white Igglybuff, in a beautiful ball.
The Moon is a glistening, overcast golf-ball in an inky sky.
The Moon is an ivy sphere, lost in a ghostly pirate ship at midnight.

Six Ways of Looking at the Moon

The Moon is a bright light shining in the sapphire sky.
The Moon is a fluffy white sheep, frolicking in the field.
The Moon is a chrome spoon in a wide-open mouth.
The Moon is a luminous, sparkly diamond in a midnight-blue velvet box.
The Moon is a gleaming, silvery tooth in a massive Giant's mouth entering the Universe.
The Moon is a glittering, hidden, magical town with alien people watching far away from an ebony sky.

Five Ways of Looking at the Moon

The Moon is a giant, chrome bowling ball ... rolling recklessly down a dark lane.
The Moon is a glittering diamond ...  gracefully circling the sapphire sky.
The Moon is a see-through football on a muddy football field.
The Moon is a silver disco ball, in a vanter black atmosphere.
The Moon is a giant, glistening and floating in a beautiful, endless sky.
