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

A Bowl of Cream and Moonshine!

I shine, I shine like moonshine.

A Bowl of Cream and Moonshine

This week has been about music, laughter and dancing words! After listening to the cello track, To Forgive and Forget, Doves drew a musical score imagining that the notes of the cello were Sophie’s  voice, the drum & base was Miss Eliot’s and the piano was Charles. It was almost as if they were dancing on the page and around the classroom as we spoke to each other and decided what they were saying. We then used the words to create poetry in the voice of Sophie Maxim, the girl with hair the colour of lightening who likes to watch from rooftops.


I can feel the breeze of the wind and hear the song of the birds, boom, crash as the music notes bang together, the vivid yellow sun winking goodbye to me as it goes away.

I search everywhere, day and night, searching for someone important. My heart is beating as the notes touch my feet and I watch the world below me.


Dancing curls look like pearls

Running notes remind me of boats

I shine, I shine like the moon shines


The notes start to dance, the cello starts to sing

My heart starts to flutter as if it has wings

Think of the sky, the birds and the clouds

My soul is so happy, it sings aloud!


The song picks up pace, the cello takes the lead

My happiness builds up like threaded beads

The music then stops, then plays very slow

My excitement dies, my happiness low

All of it gone, all erased

The music that held me in place!
