In RE we listened to the story of ‘The Rainbow Fish.’ We talked about how we could be peace makers, through sharing and our kindness.
Spoken Word poet and author Dai Woolridge visited us and shared his creation story with us. It inspired us to write our own poetry and share it with the rest of the school. We also enjoyed a special performance after school for parents and members of the community.
We were so lucky that the Worship Council has organised for Dai Woolridge to visit us in school! We had great fun working with Dai. He is a spoken word poet, story teller, and children’s author. He shared some of his poems and books with us. We then created our own poems around an animal we liked.

Poetry with Dai Woolridge
Our class enjoyed working with Dai thinking about animals, having being inspired by the Creation story. He was so passionate about his work. One pupil said they’d never met a real poet before!
Pupils wrote their own pieces….here are 2 of their favourites…
Black, cute, white like the moon is bright on a ferocious night, down and far underneath the stars the beast is there a glistening state, sure the beast panda is always there when the sun is bright, the panda stirs out of the stars, his clamping jaws are on the shore. Jack
I spot a frightened frog across the bog, although they may seem weird they should not be feared, hopping along using their humbling song, happy, humbling, hopping creatures is what they are, from frogspawn, to tadpoles, to frogs, they thrive on flies on dark nights. Lola
We had a fantastic morning with Dai Woolridge learning all about rhyming. We thought about how we can create our own poems using rhyming words.
The children loved exploring poetry and rhyme with Dai!
Children enjoyed a variety of problem solving activities this afternoon where they were able to use and apply their mathematical knowledge.
We have studied Rainforest artwork by artist John Dyer. We discovered that he uses bright colours to paint the Amazon Rainforest. We have painted our own rainforests in the style of John Dyer.
We couldn’t believe how easy it was to make charcoal! We were keen to get drawing with it the next day!
