Speaking in verse.
All over school you can hear children talking about the stories they are reading. But in Y4 and Y6 at the moment, they are speaking in verse. Y4 have been busy learning to recite a poem about the trolls and the bogeyman whereas Y6 have been exploring the depths of 'The Highwayman'.
It has been wonderful to see young learners so enthused about poetry and enjoying the different activities teachers plan to aid understanding. Y4 have been using their iPads to improve their recitals through self and peer assessment, whilst Y6 have used artwork to convey the meaning of their poem.
