Cloud Poetry
As part of Yr 1 Poetry Unit 3 - Poems on a theme I decided to take my Year 1 class outside to look at the clouds and to talk about what shapes they can see. I then brought them back into the classroom and they jotted down some of their observations on white boards - not just what they saw, but describing the shapes e.g. a scary dog, a fluffy cat, a big car etc. This Powerpoint was used as an additional resource and is rather good for those children that struggled as some photos I found on the web from various sites are really clear and obvious! It also helps if the weather isn't too great outside :) Plus if you have an interactive whiteboard you can draw over the pictures to make the clouds into the shapes that the children can see! We then used all the words we came up with to write a whole class poem of "I saw in the clouds..."
