Rainforest Poetry

Year 5 watched a video about The Amazon Rainforest and listened carefully to pick out some adventurous vocabulary. Once they had a bank of ideas, they worked together in groups to write a line each for a free verse poem. They performed their final versions to the rest of the class.

In a later session, the children looked at a poem called ‘For Forest’ by Grace Nichols and they developed their own soundscape to perform alongside a reading of the poem.
