First, we explored two poems – Block City by Robert Louis Stevenson and Gymnastics by Michael Rosen. We looked at the language features and content.
Next, we went out to experience two types of play – physical (hopscotch) and imaginative (use the paper to get to the ‘island’) When we came back in, we reflected on how each type made us feel.
Our next challenge was to write a poem which featured rhyming couplets like Block City. We decided this was our preferred style so we then started to plan out our final poem and performance!
