Creative Writing in Poetry

This past fortnight, the children in Year 2 have had a poetry focus in their English lessons. Having studied different poems and the language used, the children have been encouraged to use their five senses to help create images through their writing.

This week the children went on a poetry walk, down to Liangma River. Equipped with a clipboard, worksheet and pencil, the children were challenged to use their senses, making notes on what they could see, hear, smell, taste and feel. In addition to soft, fluffy dogs walking past, the children also watched several people fishing.

The Year 2 children have enjoyed using expanded noun phrases in their writing, with the aim of creating images in the reader’s mind and as a result have produced fantastic pieces of writing. Next time you’re walking along the Year 2 corridor, why not pop in and take a look?
