Poetry Challenge

1st February 2017

To help promote speaking and listening in our school, we will all be taking part in a poetry challenge.

In school we are learning poems / nursery rhymes so we can perform them off by heart to another year group.

We would like you to help your child at home adapt a famous poem / nursery rhyme in order to create a new one.

For example – to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat:

Ride, ride, ride, your bike,

Slowly down the road,

Pedal, pedal, pedal, pedal

Slowly as you go.


Children will perform these ‘new’ poems on a daily basis to the rest of the year group. Our challenge will begin on Monday 13th February so we would like all poems to be ready by Friday 10th February 2017.
