Inspired by ‘Overhead on a Saltmarsh’

In Y4 we have been looking at using dialogue in poetry. To help us with this, we looked at a poem based on mythical creatures ‘Overheard on a Saltmarsh’. The children used this poem to inspire their own. They looked at the features of the poem: the rhythm, the repeating phrases, and ensured that their poem included these features too!

The children have enjoyed performing their poems in front of the class and have also used peer feedback in the editing process to improve their poems.

The Official Battle Photos

Wow! What an amazing Battle we had! The Romans and Celts took to the battlefield. The children thoroughly enjoyed all the drama learning around this and were so passionate in their Battle. If you were unable to join us, here are some fantastic photos taken by John (one of our Governors).
