Get New Zealand Writing

We have joined in with thousands of other schools in the "Get New Zealand Writing" programme. Our school we are partnered with is Clive School, Hastings. We received their lovely package this week and had to finish off our one in return. Here we are working on the poem.

In our think groups we had to find words that appealed to us. Then we got all these words together and as a class selected what we wanted to use. At first it all looked a bit random but with all our ideas, this is what we came up with.


This a creative way of doing poetry.

Here is our full poster that was sent on Friday with the poem and also the postcards.
We hope that Clive School likes it
