Kia ora! Welcome to our blog, and thank you for visiting.
In Room 2 we are all about developing a lifelong passion for learning. Fostering our curiosity is our teacher, Mrs Wallace.
Please visit our blog regularly and let us know your thoughts; it's great for us to have an audience to share our journey with.
I am considered the greatest poet of all time. I was born a long time ago (well before anyone even conceived of the idea of a camera), in a place called Stratford-upon-Avon. I wrote the plays Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and King Lear. They call me The Bard because, seriously, I am that good at writing. Just sayin'.
If you think you know who I am, please email your answers through to Mrs Wallace by Monday morning.
By the way, we are going to be working on writing good poetry this term. We will learn about tone and tension. We will also practise using simile and metaphor effectively.
Here is a poem I wrote to help people understand about poetry and poets.
About the Poet
she had an artist's mind
but not an artist's hand,
and as a consequence,
but never drew.
(Yes, the lower case 's' is on purpose!) (Yes, I know it's not that good, but it only took a couple of minutes!)
