Poetry might be just the ticket while you are in lockdown.
If you are Y0 to Y8 you can try my August poem challenge. I will post poems at the end of the month and as soon as i can with have books to give away.
I love looking at the sky. I love the way it has a thousand moods: gloomy bright cloudy blue. Looking at the sky I just breathe in beauty and then I daydream. I often find the sky sneaks into my poems.
For August I challenge you to write a SKY poem.
Collect sky words: colours, movement, cloud words, night, day, patterns, similes.
Write a sky memory.
Go outside and describe the sky in a poem.
Play with sky words and make a pattern poem with words.
Write your sky poem then turn it into a picture poem (a shape poem, concrete poetry).
Write a sky-story poem.
Look at the sky and skydream
Deadline: 29th August
