Discovering Together

Stanton's National Poetry Week

This week is National Poetry Week and we would like to celebrate together!

UPDATED WITH CHILDREN'S POETRY VIDEOS

Our plan was to celebrate National Poetry Week throughout this week whilst at school but unfortunately we are all now a little far apart. However, do not fear! We are bringing National Poetry Week to you in your homes!

Last week I challenged our lovely staff to record a recital of their favourite poem. This way you will get to see and hear us and enjoy listening to some of our favourite poetry too. Watch the clip below and read on to find out what your challenges for the week are.

YOUR CHALLENGES!

Challenge 1: We would like you to do exactly as we have done. Record a video of you reciting your favourite poem and email it to your class email address. I will do my very best to share these online so that you can see and hear your friends and hopefully enjoy a huge range of poetry too. If you don't fancy recording your recital, just send a copy of your favourite poem to your class email address to be shared online or comment below with the name of your favourite poem. Don't forget to include the author!

Challenge 2: Become a poet! Have a go at writing your own poem this week. It could be about anything at all. How about writing a poem about all the time you have been spending at home? A poem about your new way of life? See a wonderful example by Niah below. 

I am waiting in anticipation to receive your poetry recitals and poetry writing. Enjoy poets!

Lock Down (written by Niah)

This matter is a matter is matter of defence

Until those brains gain a little bit of sense

This virus is wrong

People blaming Hong Kong

Its spread so fast

All wide and vast

People are shut, alone in their house

No standing up as quiet as a mouse

Streets are bare no cars passing by

This illness is really beginning to fly

Schools are shutting children at home

Only communicating by the phone

Governments busy signing corona forms

Trying hard to stifle yawns

This drama is getting on our nerves

A never ending road full of bends and curves

Everywhere I go there is frown

The world is actually in Lock Down.

 

UPDATE- A huge thank you to everyone who has sent in a poetry recital or a poem you have written yourself. They have all been fantastic and we have thoroughly enjoyed watching them. Keep an eye on this newsfeed for your video or poem. Enjoy!   

(So sorry the videos are the wrong way round- I haven't yet worked out how to stop them from turning on the website!)
