Portraying emotion through poetry

In writing, Mandela Class have been learning how to build character through description of feelings and emotions.

The children generated some incredible vocabulary and combined this with repetition and identifying nouns to create an impact on their reader. Here are some fabulous examples:

Well done Mandela.
