Dahl Class perform a poem!

In our reading lessons, we have been focussing on setting descriptions and have read several extracts about different settings! We had a go at performance poetry on Thursday where we learnt a short poem about a mysterious wood. In groups, we created actions and learnt the poem to perform to the class. I am very impressed with how many different actions were created for each line. Can you perform the poem with your actions at home? We were able to make a lot of links to other extracts including the forbidden forest and Hogwarts castle!


Mr Howley

The wood is full of shining eyes,

The wood is full of creeping feet,

The wood is full of tiny cries;

You must not go to the wood at night!
