Room 7 poets

This week Room 7 have started to read poems and create their own. The students have been eager to start this topic and it has been wonderful listening to their initial ideas.

Today Miss Stone's writing groups have been analysing The Caged Bird by Maya Angelou. After studying the poets life the learners realised that the poem was a metaphor for racism and prejudice. They then went on to create their own poems based on a big theme or idea.

This was the start of the poem that our group wrote together:

Oh, what a wonderful world,
Travelling with a beautiful girl,
An outcast;
With wings of cream
Screaming nightmares and dreams

“What a world” she deems
