In Year 3 we have been reading ‘The Tin Forest’ by Helen Ward. The main character dreams of a beautiful land but wakes up in a scrap yard. We wrote a whole class poem about his happy dreams then wrote a contrasting verse in groups. Alongside this, we have been learning about performance poetry and how poetry can be recited to deepen the understanding of the poem and increase enjoyment for the listener. We have performed our group poems – we hope you like them!
