To celebrate Halloween in Year 4, we had an entire day dedicated to all things spooky and frightening. During the morning, we read Halloween poetry and analysed the texts to find good language that we could adapt and use in our own poems.
After watching Mr Gregory and Mrs Trueman perform Halloween poems, we created a checklist of the features we would need to include when performing poems of our own. We used this checklist to enhance our group performances. After break, we attempted to create our own Halloween poems using what we had learned in the morning.
The Halloween fun continued into the afternoon with: apple bobbing, biscuit decorating, pumpkin and spider hunt, tattoos and nail painting.
