Year Five Class News
During Term Two the Year Five students studied Poetry writing where they explored various poetry types such as Haikus, Cinquains and Acrostic poems. Once the students had gained knowledge of the structures and language features of different poems, they wrote their own poems based on a particular theme. The students got creative as they compiled their poems into a Lapbook, using many different resources to decorate their work. Some of the Lapbook themes included Family, Australia, Sport and Tropical Islands.

To showcase their Lapbooks to their peers, the Year Fives held a Poet’s Picnic where they eagerly shared their poems with the Year Three students. The Picnic was enjoyed by all, with the Year Fives explaining their wonderful knowledge of Poetry to the Year Threes. Below are comments made by Year Five students about the success of the Poet’s Picnic.

“I enjoyed expressing my Poetry knowledge to the Year Three students, which let them learn about Poetry in a fun way” Thomas

“I liked teaching the Year Threes about Poetry as I showed them how to make different poems” Olivia

“I appreciated how well the Year Threes listened while we read our poems. I also enjoyed receiving positive feedback about my Lapbook” Charlie

“I liked how the Year Threes respected us and listened while we shared our poems. They gave kind feedback about the different poems I had written” Cyara
