Poetry Afternoon

Today we have taken part in the Key Stage 2 poetry afternoon! Mrs Thompson’s English group performed ‘The Ghost Teacher’ by our class poet, Allan Ahlberg. We tried hard to apply the skills we learned from Matt Goodfellow (the performance poet) and use our voices, bodies and movement to make it interesting. Because the poem was about a ghost, we tried hard to make it scary!

    My poem was called The Old Teacher and the poem was about an old teacher who lived in a school and died in the school. I said verse 2 and I think that is one of the funniest verses there is. I said my poem in a silly voice as if old person would say it. I think The Old Teacher is very silly and funny as well as The Ghost Teacher. I really enjoyed it because it was like an assembly, but with everyone preforming in it!

    We did our poem today using lots actions and changing our voices tone, this was so much fun. We did the first verse I had to cover the teacher with paper to make her a bed.
    This poem was about an old teacher who lived in a school watching all the children and finally died in the school sandpit.
    It was so much fun all classes watched each other performing their poem. I wish we more and more assembly’s like this, I really liked it Ime sure everyone else liked it to.

    Poems are really is really Easy to recite because of rhyming couplets. Our poem was the ‘Old Teacher.’ I was verse 4.Here is our verse …
    There was an old teacher ,
    Who finally dead,
    Reading Ginn level 1 which she couldn’t abide,
    The words on her tombstone was ten out of ten,
    Her grave is the sandpit ,
    That’s all now,
