SHAKESPEARE WEEK and NATIONAL POETRY DAY
Year 4 children learned lots this week about the great writer- Shakespeare. Our Shakespeare text was The Tempest. During this week we looked at a style of poetry called Kenning. This style of poetry is extremely old and dates back to the Anglo Saxon and Viking times, our topic.
We used the Kenning style to write about the Tempest characters.
