The Wonders of Poetry in Year 3

April 15, 2016

Last week in Year 3 we were looking at how to write poems using rhyming couplets. First we studied the work of great children literature writers, such as Robert Louis Stevenson and his poem ‘The Land of Counterpane’. Then we decided to give it a try ourselves and we began our own poems taking care to use words that rhyme. Using rhyming dictionaries we had fun discovering that many words with such different meanings sound the same- English is such a funny language! In the end, we typed down and decorated our poems and displayed them in our classroom for everyone to read and enjoy!
