We Love Poetry!

The students in 3/4C are thoroughly enjoying our poetry unit.

Earlier in the term, we investigated poems and learnt about figurative language in poetry. Now, all students have started their own poetry anthology.

Students have written several poems for their anthology, including:

  • Observations in our environment
  • Colours
  • Environmental issues
  • Family
  • Free choice

The poems written by the students for most of our unit have not been of a particular structure, so they have had a lot of freedom with the style, organisation and layout of their poems. However, earlier this week, we did investigate five types of popular poem structures. They are:

  • Cinquain poems
  • Haiku poems
  • Concrete poems
  • Limericks
  • Diamante poems

Each of these styles of poems have specific features and a set structure. They are described below.

The enthusiasm of the 3/4C students during our poetry unit has been absolutely fantastic! Miss Jordan is very proud of all their work!
