Colour Poems

Yesterday, Mrs Morris taught 4B while Miss Jordan was at a professional development day. One of the activities the students worked on with Mrs Morris was a colour poem.

We take in our surroundings using all five senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. The students in 4B reflected on this and created a poem that described a colour using the five senses. They used lots of adjectives (describing words) and descriptive imagery in their writing.

The students created their poems by:

    1. brainstorming their ideas
    2. drafting their poem
    3. publishing their work

The published pieces are all fantastic and really create a clear image in the reader’s mind!

4B now have a colourful display of their poetry to brighten up their classroom!
