Y3: Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War

Remembering the Armistice

Poetry can be used to remember and to share a profound moment, thoughts and feelings. On the 11th November you can mark Armistice Day by harnessing the power of poetry.  Children explored why do poems have a special status? Poems are precious to people. They express feelings and emotions with carefully chosen words and images. They can explore any subject, event or moment. They can change the way we see the world and the way we see ourselves.

In Year 3 we consider how writing poetry gives a person: 
• A chance to live forever on paper 
• A voice 
• Inspiration 
• Metaphors and similes 
• Freedom to break the rules of grammar 
• A manageable form of writing which can be short like a Haiku 
• A way to express something that may or may not have been said before 
• An outlet for their feelings.

Year 3 enjoyed getting creative and writing their own poems;
