Outdoor Poetry

Two Ilkley Primary pupils writing out their poems laying on some twigs

Form Two used their senses to describe the school grounds in an outdoor, multisensory English lesson. Here are a couple of their poems.

Poem 1

I can see a huge, massive, colossal, thick tree.

I can hear the humming of cars.

I can smell the sweet sunshine.

– Isabel

Poem 2

I can see snowdrops brewing.

I can hear the crunching of leaves.

I can smell the spring air.

I can feel the crusty leaves.

I can taste spring awaiting.

I can see mole holes.

I can dream of climbing the old, spiky tree and walking on daisies.

– William
