In Year 5 we have been reading and exploring poems by John Agard. We spent time identifying common themes and messages within his poems. We were then able to infer and deduce information about John. After reading his poem, The Dew-Stealers, in groups we worked together to come up with our own ideas of how to describe dew and reiterate the message behind John’s poem. We used precise adjectives, powerful verbs, good adverbs and imagery. Each group then wrote their own verse. As a class, we then put all of the verses together, edited it and produced a brilliant class poem.
