Today we have been writing poetry based on our classic book 'Peter Pan'.
We read the chapter where the children are learning to fly with Peter and wrote poetry based on this experience. We considered all of our senses as we wrote.
Some of the children would like to share extracts of theirs with you...
Adriana and Charlie:
Lights flickering all around,
Damp air rushing past him in the darkness,
The taste of bitter smoke makes him shiver.
Green trees towering above her in the gloomy night,
Whistling air flowing past her,
Golden birds performing around her in the early morning hours.
Anna and Aaliyah:
In the distance i can see,
The reflection of light glowing on me,
My ears are popping here and there,
At the sound of the harsh, cold air,
Going to Neverland seems a delight,
But I fear it will give me a fright.
Big Ben chiming which gives me a scare,
It almost sounds like a big brown bear,
As Peter Pan leads the way,
I hide behind like a stowaway,
The bright shining stars twinkle away,
While I admire them from far away.
Ewan and Danny:
The lights of town are shining below,
As the fairy dust leaves my palm;
I am free from the monster that goes by the name of gravity,
Whilst the bitter winter air,
rushes through my long hair ,
Adrenaline pumps through my veins when I'm in the air,
but this time I'm not alone,
So I call the names,
Of Wendy, John and Michael.
David and Ethan:
Stars sparkling all around us,
London looking so quiet below us in the darkness,
Birds chirping, Owls hooting,
Freezing wind rushing around us and
Glittering pink ,sparkly fairy dust trailing behind us!
Foggy danger straight ahead,
Whishing, whoshing in our ears,
Will we ever get there, wherever there is!
Keely and Bonnie:
Fairy dust sensationally lifts me in the air,
My nightie is rippling, lightly tickling in my legs ,
The car lights are flashing like stars twinkling in night sky ,
Lights of the town sparkling below,
The cold-fire smoke burning though me.
Soft fluffy candyfloss flavored clouds,
Snow-white seagulls soaring below .
Icy, bitter, wintry air flushing through my hair like water,
The stars in the black night sky twinkling brightly.
The Railway children!
We all loved the Railway Children production today. The acting was brilliant and it was amazing how just 4 people played 14 characters!
Year 6 were lucky enough to have a special behind the scenes workshop on how it is made.
We were shown the dress changes, lights and sound and were even taught to use a different pitch and voice to change characters.
