On the 3rd October Columbus School and College celebrated National Poetry Day; this was a busy day filled with experiencing and creating poems. In Early Years the children listened to their favourite songs and rhymes to inspire them – you can see an example of their great work through Class 1’s wonderful poem titled ‘My Body’, with ideas taken from their ‘Ourselves’ topic. The day culminated with a whole department performance of the children’s much loved ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. Here are the children experiencing the rhyme through sensory props, music and animation. Great poetry work everyone!
