The magic box in Year One

The children in Year One have been busy planning and writing their own poems based on “The Magic Box” written by Kit Wright.

Last week, they explored the poem and discussed their own special memories, which included riding a bike for the very first time, meeting a new friend, going to the seaside or learning new words in a different language.

The children explored a range of poetic features, including onomatopoeia, alliteration and rhyming couplets. They had a go at writing their own refrains and peer assessed what went well and what they could improve next time.
