Creating Interesting Vocabulary for our Firework Poems

In 4M, we are starting to write Firework poems based on our class novel 'The Firework Makers Daughter.' Firstly, we decided that for inspiration, we would light sparklers to help us think of interesting vocabulary for our own writing. We talked about all the senses we would use if we were at a firework display and this helped us to think of figurative language to use in the first verse/stanza of our poem.

Here are a few members of our class holding sparklers...

Some children hadn't held a sparkler before and after a safety talk they were so excited to hold them!






Please check out our blog this week to see how the sparkler session has impacted on our learning.  See if you can spot any examples of figurative language,
such as: Metaphors, personification, similes, alliteration and onomatopoeia.
