Poetry in Ash and Birch Class

Year 6 and 5 wrote some poetry recently, which we decided to enter in an online competition.  The poetry started with discussions about emotions during several R.E. lessons.  We looked at colours and how they made us feel and how they are used to show our emotions e.g. red for anger, yellow for jealousy, blue for sadness or feelings of calm.  The children then took their thoughts and translated them into poems.


We entered the poems on and lots of our work was selected for publication in a new poetry anthology, alongside poems from other children in the Plymouth area.  Our children who were selected received a certificate by post, which was then presented to them in Assembly. They will also have an opportunity to buy the anthology when it has been printed.  Luckily for Laira Green Primary, we will also receive a free copy of the book for our library!



We are very proud of our poets and would like to share their works with you. Click on the link to read our poetry:
