Analysing war poetry

To coincide with the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, 5W have been looking at some of the poetry that was written during this horrific time in history. We have imagined ourselves as soldiers storming the beaches and created a “senses bank” detailing what we might have felt, seen, tasted, heard and smelled. Today (06/11/18) we examined a variety of war poems from different eras and authors and identified the adjectives, verbs, nouns and adverbs in the poetry. Using IPads, we recorded these words in groups to create a word cloud, where words used most frequently are written largest with words used less often appear smaller. We will be using both these resources to assist us in creating our own poetry over the coming days and weeks.

Welcome to Mount Carmel RC Primary; a place where we proclaim Christ’s message of hope and celebrate the uniqueness of each child.
