Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

The Calm Before The Storm

Since reading about a huge storm in our story 'The Green Ship', in our English lessons, we have been preparing ourselves to create a poem about a storm. 

To create atmosphere and help us to imagine how the two children were feeling, we listened to clips of thunderstorms and then came up with keywords and phrases to describe the noises, the sights and the emotions we would feel. We then got into small groups and created a dance based on the storm. We were given the choice to use the sound clip, or to create our own sounds from the storm, using our bodies. Some of us came up with exciting ways such as stamping on the floor, clapping, making 'whooshing' noises and hitting different body parts like our knees to get different crashing sounds to represent the thunder, wind and rain.

Here are some pictures of our performances.

We will be drafting, editing and publishing our poems next week and we cannot wait!
