Pirate poetry and drama.

Sunday 21st October | 4 comments

On Monday we had a visit from Mr Mee and some students. He showed us a picture of ship in rough sea.

We decided it looked like a pirate ship and enjoyed doing a drama session where we got to act out being on board the ship. We have been writing some poems based on our senses, so we decided to use the pirate ship drama to inspire our writing.

Back in class we did some more drama and hot seating to talk with the captain of the pirate ship! We watched some clips of ships in storms to watch the waves and listen to the sounds.

We shared our ideas and then drafted our poems. We read them and checked to see if we could improve them, using adjectives and similes. In ICT we used 2Publish+ to present our poems and illustrate them. At Circle Time we shared our feelings about our learning, we had enjoyed the drama, especially with Mr Mee and we felt proud of our achievements. Well done everyone. 🙂

    Hello everyone

    I really enjoyed seeing your pictures and reading your poetry. Here’s one of mine ….

    Oh Skipper
    What a crew
    They are no good so what about you?
    Here’s the people of the port
    They’ll show you a thing or two
