Literacy - Poems and Poem Performances

Kites created their own Autumn poems based on the poem 'A Recipe for a Summer Holiday' by John Foster:

Recipe for a Summer Holiday

John Foster
Take a stretch of sandy beach
and a calm sea.
Add a pier, a promenade,
donkey-rides and a fun-fair.
Sprinkle with buckets and spades,
deck chairs, lilos and picnic baskets.
Cover with slices of sunshine
and wrap in warm photographs
to look at on dark winter days.
Once the children had selected poems, they worked together in groups to perform the poems.
