A GREAT START TO 2018
In Literacy we have just completed a two week unit on poetry, based on the BBC trailer used for the 2014 Winter Olympics. In the clip, Charles Dance recites a poem entitled ‘The Dreadful Menace’ (as only Charles Dance can). The poem uses figurative language including personification, similes and metaphors to describe winter and the challenge the contestants face. Our learning has focused on this plus exaggeration, hyperboles, alliteration and onomatopoeia.
The children’s written responses have blown Mrs Larner and me away! (Oh to be a creative person!) It’s only right we celebrate their efforts, so sit back and enjoy.....
