As always, we welcomed the over-80s of Dentdale into school for a Harvest Celebration before half-term, and the children shared gifts of chutney that we had made in school. The Class 1 children shared songs that they had learned, whilst the Class 2 children shared poems based on the ideas of autumn and harvest.
Lower KS2 wrote acrostic poems on the theme of Harvest or Autumn, whilst upper KS2 focused on using imagery of the natural and farming world around us to explore some of the ideas of autumn and harvest, such as life and death, gratitude and community. They used simile and metaphor to expand their writing.
Some of the poems they wrote are shared here for you to enjoy.
