National Poetry Day

To celebrate National Poetry Day, we explored the famous war poem, In Flanders Fields by John McCrae. This also links to our IPC topic and our class novel, Private Peaceful. We played a game called running dictation to familiarise ourselves with the lines and enjoyed learning new vocabulary. We also used our drama skills to create movements to enhance our performance of the poem. We were really moved and shocked by the images of WW1cemetries because of the sheer scale of the loss of life.
