Year 2: Poetry

December 17, 2021

Our Year 2 children have been looking carefully at the book 'Winter Sleep' by Sean Taylor and Alex Morss.

They looked at the front cover which depicted a winter scene where there was snow on the ground and the trees were bare. They then compared this with an illustration at the beginning of the book which showed a summer scene with blossoming flowers and green grass.

We asked the children to write a poem about the comparison of summer and winter using expanded noun phrases, observations, and appropriate vocabulary. They also wrote an acrostic poem about winter showing off their vocabulary skills. 

We will be continuing to read the book after Christmas focusing on animals that hibernate and the reasons behind this. Well done Year 2, you are budding poets and we are very proud of you!
