Year 6’s art gallery by Amara

Today both year 6 classes successfully produced an amazing Art Gallery. We had some very brave students performing poems. We also had year 5 and year 4 come down to show them the fabulous artwork too. The poems that were performed were structured as Roger Mcgoughs famous poem My favourite thing is, However we re-created them in our own words. There were flower paintings, self-portrait drawings, and much more that we trimmed and presented our self. There were also guides to help parents and students learn more about the artists and why we chose them. It was a very uplifting morning and we hope anyone who came was very impressed.

Aniq and Mike’s poem

This week we have been writing poems in the style of Roger McGough.

Please give us feedback on what you think.

The Magic Watch!

By Aniq and Mike

 

My favourite thing is a watch

I found it on the cinema floor

It looks like any other

But it’s got the power of Thor

 

It tidies my room for me

It makes nasty people disappear

It grows money trees in the garden

It makes lost objects reappear

 

It makes vegetables taste like chocolate,

When raindrops touch the ground

They turn into sparkling diamonds

With a twinkle and a gentle sound

 

Swim in the deepest oceans

And meet your favourite fish

Simply hold it in your hand

Close your eyes and make a wish

 

My favourite thing is a watch

It means the world to me

I couldn’t bear without it

(…..but it’s yours for 99p.)

The Magic Glasses

By Dawud

 

 

 

My favourite things are my glasses

That I found lying on the beach

They look like any other

But their magic is always in reach

 

 

They make you ever so clever

Make you see something that you shouldn’t see

They give me x-ray vision

And make me see all the beautiful creatures in the sea

 

They turn messy writing into neat

Turn a house into a mansion

A rock into a sports car

And they work like a potion

 

Put them on, push the button

Your classroom can become your jet.

Space travel is so easy

Your chair will turn into a pet

 

My favourite things are my glasses

They mean the world to me.

I couldn’t bear to be without them

(….but their yours for 99p)
