Year 2- Poetry
Year 2 children are going to be writing free verse woodland poems during the week beginning 31st Jan.
We will be using images and video clips to bring the woods to them as much as possible for writing inspiration.
However, if you are able to visit a wood or forest and encourage children to think about what they can see, feel, hear, touch and smell, that would be very beneficial to support and extend their language.
Children are also invited to bring in examples of bark, leaves, seed pods etc for closer observation.
Thank you for your continued support.

As part of our learning in this topic, Year 2 will be building structures outside in our outdoor learning classroom. In order to make our lesson as successful and memorable as possible we need a selection of thin and thick sticks approx 30 cm - 70cm in length.
The lesson will be taking place on Thursday 25th November and Friday 26th November, so please bring in your sticks before Thursday.
