    9.9.19 List Poems

    In English, we are reading and writing list poems. We began by reading 'Ten Things Found in a Wizard's Pocket' by Ian McMillan. We then wrote our own group poems inspired by this. Ideas included things found in the pocket's of Father Christmas', an explorer and an old lady!

    List poems by Eagles



    Our topic this term is 'Invasion' and we will be learning lots about the Vikings.


    Some questions we will be focusing on will be:

    Where did the Vikings come from?

    What made the Vikings so successful?

    What made the Viking Longship a good mode of transport?
