This week, year 6T have made some awesome artwork, trying to replicate the Northern Lights (also known as the Aurora Borealis) with oil pastels. We also cut out some silhouettes of trees and animals and glued them on.
In our classroom, some of us have been writing haikus while others wrote tanka-style poems. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines, each line has a fixed amount of syllables, the first line has 5 syllables while the second has 7, the third line ends with 5 syllables. Tanka poems are similar to haikus but they have two extra lines, both with 7 syllables. Here are some examples:
As you can see, our topic has really inspired us. Now we want to go and see the real thing!
