Not forgetting - We will become expert in the field of Kenning: Poetry.
A News Reporter Visited Us Today!
Fantastic Fours had a special visitor today to help with our new topic 'Newspaper Reports'. Journalists from The Staffordshire News Letter came to visit us to explain how they report the news. The children asked some fantastic questions and had a go and interviewing with the help and support of real journalists!
We are investigating the structure of a cinquain poem, we are going to create our own and think about the syllables involved. The lines follow a 2,4,6,8,2 syllable pattern.
