English Lesson at Manor Barn

We were blessed with absolutely beautiful autumnal weather last week for our English lesson at Manor Barn. Year 2 walked across the footbridge (waving at the cars as we went) to the stunning gardens. We were thinking autumnal thoughts and collecting nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs for the children’s poems about Autumn. The children were impeccably well behaved and worked really hard for the hour we were out and came back to school brimming with ideas for their poems. We hope that you enjoy reading our poems as much as we enjoyed writing them!

Poetry Writing at Manor Barn

The last two weeks, we have been studying and writing poems. With the weather being so lovely, we decided to take our poetry lesson in the Manor Barn Gardens last week. The children were excellently behaved, as always, and really enjoyed the change of scenery. They explored the gardens using their senses and collected ideas for their poems: nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. The children wrote some beautiful poems about Manor Barn in the Spring. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them!

Poetry Performance

This morning, we were looking at a range of poems and discussing the differences between poems and stories. The children particularly liked the Brian Moses poem: Aliens Stole My Underpants. They decided that they wanted to share it with you! We discussed how to (and how not to) read a poem and other ways to make it interesting for you at home. The children split into teams and had 20 minutes to work together to learn their section off by heart, add actions and expression. We hope you like the result!
