Spring Term 1

This week in guided reading we used spoken language to develop our understanding of poetry.  We did this by imagining and exploring ideas in role play drama and dance.  We also discussed and evaluated how authors use language, including figurative language, showed consideration for words used and how they impacted on the reader.


Hovering in mid-air

like no other-





then nose




Iridescent bomber, bringing

no harm to the heart of the flower-


The flower that gives up her nectar

but expects you, Hummingbird, to carry

the golden dust of her desire-


No wonder the ancient Aztecs

named you 'pollinating child-of-the-sun'.


Have a look at the photos of the children completing their role play interpretation of hummingbird.
