National Poetry Day - Ferns

We received a letter this morning! We were very excited to learn the poem we were given from the book 'Lost Words'. We worked hard to learn the poem. We then performed our poem to the other Year 1 and 2 class; YH and YT. We even performed the poem to Mrs Lees, Miss O'Rourke and Mrs Cross!

We looked at some of the words and created shared definitions

 

Furled - means to be neatly and securely rolled up - we compared this to an umbrella

 

Flares - means to spread outwards in form

 

Fronds - these are the leaf like parts of the fern

 

Fiddle-head - the young curled up part of the fern - we thought it looked a bit like a snail. We now know that you can eat this part! 

 

Fanned - means to spread apart - fully fanned means it is fully grown - the fronds have completely spread out

We performed our poem ‘Fern’
