The Red Robin’s poetic trip 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!

Class 9 – What did you think of Robins journey? What did you enjoy about creating your own poem in Michael Morpurgo’s poetry style?

    Oh my gosh! The robin was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute!? It was the sweetest thing that I have ever seen, so so adorable I wish we could watch it again it has been my favourite English lesson ever.

    I loved writing in the style of Michael Monpurgo (I don’t know if I have spelt this right) it was so fun to write poetry and not have to go through trying to make everything Ryme!

    I really wish we could do this again I love watching the video it inspired me to keep on going to Waitrose and buy their food- the greatest most legendery advert I have ever seen!

    I also loved drawing illustrations of the Robin although mine was not actually as cute as the real thing, I wish it was though!

    Maybe we can study another Michael Monpurgo story/book and write another poem- that would be so fun. Yay!
