Senses Poetry

Published Friday, September 16, 2011.
Last updated: Friday, September 16, 2011

The children have been focussing on their senses for the past couple of weeks and have been on walks around the school as well as sampling the delights of smelling, tasting and feeling investigations! This week we asked them the Learning Question (LQ) ... "Can you use your knowledge of what you have seen on your sight walk to help us write a class poem together?"

To help the children with this we used a poem called "The Sight Catcher" which we read together. Using the structure of this poem, and borrowing the beginning and ending of the original, we worked together as a class to create our own 'masterpiece'! We hope you enjoy the children's version, which is called "The Sight Catcher". 

The Sight Catcher - by 1S.

 A stranger called this morning,

Dressed all in black and grey,

Put every sight into a bag

And carried them away:


The propeller of the fan blowing the wind around,

The beautiful and colourful flowers and trees,

The blue water of the swimming pool that is lovely and cool to swim in,

The yummy food in the canteen with signs and colours to help us choose,

Colourful birds flying high in the sky, landing in trees and on the ground,

Wooden tables to sit at, while you eat your delicious food.


A stranger called this morning,

He did not leave his name,

He left us no sights anywhere,

Life will never be the same.
