  • Year 2 Around the World Cinquain Poems

    Published 18/12/16

    A cinquain is a five-line poem that was invented by Adelaide Crapsey; an American poet who took her inspiration from Japanese haiku and tanka. 

    The poem follows a syllabic pattern of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2 for each line respectively. As part of our 'Around the World' topic, the children have written cinquain poems, in Literacy, about a country of their choice. Each child chose a country that was special to them because they had been there or have family that live there. Year 2 are very lucky to have links to all over the world so listen out for some samples of different languages! The children were thrilled to share their experience of other cultures, languages and countries and hope that you enjoy their poems in the following video.

    Year 1 pupils had the experience of developing all skills through a thematic story linked to the overarching topic ‘Around the World’. 

    ‘The Great Kapok Tree’, a story set in the Amazon Rainforest, awoke most of Year 1’s interest and allowed the pupils to explore the character’s feelings; the moral of the story; the geographical aspects of it and even the drama involved.
