A Bit of Nonsense

Upper Key Stage 2 have enjoyed an afternoon inspired by the poems of Edward Lear and Lewis Carrol. In class they read limericks and nonsense poetry such as The Owl and the Pussycat and Jabberwocky then they headed outside to see if they could create their own verse. Working in teams they were given a simple poem framework to use if they wanted or they could create their own from scratch.

Once the poem was completed they were then given clay to create any of the characters, these were then displayed when the poems were shared with the class. Some of the finished poems will be written up in our Forest School so the whole school can enjoy them.

Principle 3: Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.
