Another fabulous class poem YO-1 made with me at Ormond School

Some Year Ones joined in a workshop with Y2 and 3s and collected sky words. We used some of these words the next day and added more to come up with this class poem.

 

Sky

Fluffy floating soft clouds

birds diving gliding flying

the sun shines

buttercup sun

daffodil sun

An aeroplane zooms

and glides

A rainbow colourful and bendy

 

 

 

 

Playing about with stops and goes

The last two Fridays I have given tips on punctuation in poems; on capital letters and some punctuation marks.

I said punctuation adds to the flow of the poem. It changes the look of the poem on the page. Punctuation helps steer the reader through the poem like a set of oars in a rowing boat.

I thought I would show a poem I wrote with a whole lot of punctuation choices. I always stick to my choice in a poem though (in other words be consistent!). Check how my poem changes each time. Think about how you will use punctuation. It is like a game of spot the difference. Which is your favourite version?

1. The Sky

If you fly above

a grey cloudy day,

you’re sure to find

a shiny, blue sky.

 

From way up high,

the world will look

like white candy floss,

all sweet and sticky.

You’re sure to find

A shiny blue sky.

4. The Sky

If you fly above

a grey cloudy day,

you’re sure to find
