Words in the Woods!

 P5/6 is focusing on poetry for the next couple of weeks. They have had several visits from Stirling’s makkar, Anita Govan. Right now they are writing, modifying and perfecting their own poems. At the end of all this they are going to have a massive poetry competition called a poetry slam, where the audience  vote on the poets there are several rounds and after all that there is a winner. Our future could be a perfect poet!

He are some examples :



The line


We’re lining up at animal school,

First in line is badger

Next to miss madger

Next to badger is Fox

Friends with Simon Cox

Then there’s bee

Standing with pride and glee

Next to bee is beaver

Former primary one leaver

Next to beaver is squirrel

Always in a whirl.

What a mass

That’s our P6 class.


We are all trying very hard in groups and individually to perfect our poems.
