Poetry in Year 1

We enjoyed one of our favourite activities this morning- Buddy Reading! We love it when our role models from Year4 come down and share a book with us. 

In English we've been looking at poetry, and getting better at reciting it. Have a look at this poem, Hand on the Bridge, peformed excellently by Michael Rosen. 

Hand on the bridge
            feel the rhythm of the train.

Hand on the window
        feel the rhythm of the rain.

Hand on your throat
           feel the rhythm of your talk.

Hand on your leg
                 feel the rhythm of your walk.

Hand in the sea
                feel the rhythm of the tide.

Hand on your heart
     feel the rhythm inside.

Hand on the rhythm
              feel the rhythm of the rhyme.

Hand on your life
         feel the rhythm of time.
hand on your life
        feel the rhythm of time
hand on your life
         feel the rhythm of time.
