Last Wednesday, Amber class were set the challenge of writing an alphabet poem. Together, we chose the topic of animals before heading off in groups to write parts of the poem. We worked fantastically in teams, sharing ideas and helping each other to come up with the best lines. What words could we use to keep the reader amused? Are we going to use rhyming words or not? Can we keep a good rhythm to our poem?
At the end of the lesson we combined all of the lines we had been working on to create one fabulous poem. Can you spot the made up animal? Can you find the rhyming words? What is your favourite line of the poem? We’d love to get your feedback! We are very happy with the result! We hope you love it too!
