6B’s Winter Poetry Performances!

Over the last two weeks, as part of their English unit, 6B have been learning about Sonnets and have tried very hard to create their very own seasonal poem! We used the cold, blistering weather as a stimulus to develop our winter vocabulary and phrases linking to our five senses.

Today, using emphasis, expression, gesticulation, we performed our poems! Have a look at our imovie below!
