Our Class Poem – ‘If Only…….’

Last week we watched a video about how to write an ‘If Only…’ poem and we decided to try to write our own one with the same title. We chose whether we wanted to work with a partner or work on our own, and we brainstormed our ‘if only….’ ideas.

We made a PowerPoint slide to illustrate each idea. We also recorded our verses and then put them all together in Windows Movie Maker to make one big ‘If Only….’ class poem.

We’ve got some more ideas about more ‘If Only…..’ poems – but meanwhile have a look/listen below at our first attempt and please leave a comment to let us know what you think.
