Year Four: English – Poetry

To begin our English learning in Year Four, have had a go at writing our own poems using a variety of skills that we’ve built up over the last two weeks. This unit was all about developing our vocabularies and being experimental. During this unit, we looked at two different poems by two different poets – ‘Overheard on a Saltmarsh’ by Harold Monro and ‘A Small Dragon’ by Brian Patten. In addition to the content of our writing, we have focussed on our handwriting to help build fluency and pace. Have a look at some of our final pieces below:
