Words inspire Grantham pupils on National Poetry Day
Children at Dudley House School celebrated National Poetry Day earlier this month with a range of activities including creating acrostic poems, a live internet lesson to learn about figurative language and rhyming games.
They also entered The Lost Words competition promoted by the National Poetry Day.
Miss White, English co-ordinator said, “Children are always thrilled when we have special days like these, especially when their hard work is recognised by the wider community.”
Older children engaged with a live internet lesson to learn about figurative language.
A pupil said: “It was cool when you got a ‘shout out’ to Dudley House School on the screen.”
Nursery and reception class enjoyed exploring spaghetti,
collecting describing words after reading the poem ‘Spaghetti Spaghetti’ by Jack Prelutsky.
At the end of a fun packed day, the children played rhyming games altogether and received a poem from the school’s ‘Poetry Post’ to share with those at home.
