Year 5 had great fun with the poet Ash Dickinson.  He gave a talk on his journey to become a poet which was very interesting.  In the afternoon he gave a workshop on how to create a poem.  Ash introduced the children to Haiku which is a Japanese style of poem with three lines, comprising of 5, 7 then 5 syllables.  The children then created their own poem. They will continue to study poetry this week.
