Secret Garden Inspires Poetry in Tamar Class 27 Apr 2013

Tamar Class have been reading lots of poetry recently. Mr Wild wanted us to write some poetry about spring, so we went off to Constantine’s secret garden (Glebe Garden) to get inspired. It was a beautiful sunny day and the spring flowers were all rushing into bloom: celandine, bluebell, pink campion and rhododendron to name a few. The air was thick with the sound of birdsong and the scent of bay. It was hard not to get inspired. We had a magical time in the garden, wrote some amazing verses and learned lots about the names of some of the woodland and hedgerow plants that abound at this time of year. A highlight was the gunnera (Japanese Rhubarb) that was just sprouting out from the swampy bog like alien life forms. Every body was keen to finish their poems back in the classroom. Once they were finished, we added them to our class blog and added a photo that we had taken on the iPads. Please look at our amazing secret garden poetry on Tamar Class Blog – they won’t disappoint and WILL inspire you.
