Coming Home!


On Monday we created the last three stanzas to the Michael Morpurgo book, ‘ Coming Home’. It was an enjoyable lesson and everyone loved using the poetic (but not completely) style of the author. This was a very creative lesson with lots of vivid description. Another great part was the Waitrose advert that we got to watch as it was based on the book and helped us imagine what the bird had seen and gone through!

    I very much so enjoyed the poetry work that we did. It was very imaginative and poetry is alot harder then you first think.

    I’m sure the poem was lovely and you all had a great time writing the end of it.

  5. Cora Wareh

    This was particularly fun as I have never written poetry in the first person before, so this was a very big chance to describe feelings. I also enjoyed the repetition for effect (such as “Longing for my love, my love”.
