Linked to our topic “We’re all going on a summer holiday”, Year One have been reading a poem about the seaside. They discovered that each line focuses on a different sense – touch, smell, sight, taste and hearing. Everyone enjoyed firstly performing the poem together with actions and then we concentrated on finding pairs of rhyming words within it. Afterwards, Year One were eager to write their own senses poem. Their poems were full of adjectives and descriptive language. When they had completed their poems, everybody read their work to a partner. It was delightful to hear all of the lovely expression that the children used during their performance.
