As part of my visit, we did picture poems – as you know I love doing these myself.
You need your EARS and your EYES working hard! You could call these shape poems and you could call these concrete poetry but I call them picture poems.

First we went hunting for words to match the subject (as many as possible).
Secondly we made word patterns or word strings. We picked three words then made patterns with them to make word strings.
Thirdly we drew a quick outline of our subject.
Fourthly we picked where to put the words. Around the outline or fill the subject up! (You can’t do both).
Lastly we put the words in to make the picture. You can draw in little details. You can just use pencil or you can add a bit of colour in the details. Let the words make the picture though.

Congratulations my Y3/4 writing group. I got goose bumps when these arrived in my email box. They look so good and they would be such fun to read aloud. How you read them is over to you.
As much as these are PICTURE poems they are SOUND poems.
I loved every one of them so it was hard picking a few to put on this post. You all worked so hard on these. A big thank you to the teachers who helped you to finish them.
