We have written poems about Wellington City: The City is a Laughing, I Imagine Wellington as a Pizza, Wellington is a Garden. We have been learning about personification; giving inanimate things human characteristics, using imagery and other poetic devices. And we are learning to edit our writing; a super important skill. Samuel Taylor Coleridge said the Poetry is 'the best words in the best order'. That's is what we have been trying to do.
Last night I saw the beach star-gazing
The water reflected the moon
Stars glimmered sleepily
Sand stared upwards
Shells boasting to constellations......
Perhaps it would be a great conversation to have as a whanau; what are our important places?
Where can we feel totally at peace? Is there somewhere where we feel connected to the world, the environment or even the universe?
Let's keep thinking big and expressing our ideas with rich poetry!
