Team Poetry Challenge

22 Jun

This morning we had a team poetry challenge. Inspired by these photos of the local area we wrote poetry as a team, combining ideas and collaborating to produce one piece of work.  Listen to these quick recordings we made.  

Which do you think was the best? Add your comments to this post or vote on the poll below.

    Wow! What a fantastic choice of poetry creations. You really rose up to the challenge you were set!

    I found it really hard to choose a winner! I really liked the expressive language and metaphors in the yellow team’s, The Weir.

    The delivery of Blue Groups “Sunset” was clear and it was easy to be able build up a mental picture of from your wonderful descriptions.

    I loved the phrase from Red groups poem – Trees as slender as a wizards wand, tall as giants watching watching the light dancing on the water”

    But I think my favourite was the Four Seasons poem. Not only did it have descriptions which made it easy for me to picture your local area, but the poem had a simple but effective structure as it enabled me to picture the weir in all four seasons.

    Impressive! Mr Cobb must be very proud of your whole class! I know I would be if my class produced work of this quality!
