In the day garden

Some of the 2nd year pupils are using part of their visits to the LRC to create posters for the Sensory Garden.

First, pupils learned about haiku, a kind of Japanese poem, with the following outline:

  • first line = 5 syllables
  • second line = 7 syllables
  • third line = five syllables

Since the focus of the haiku was the sensory garden, we all trooped over to have a look around and see what had changed. The sundial and chiminea received a lot of attention, but there was also a bit of confusion about the purpose of the black bins (they’re actually for compost).

A variety of haiku were created back in the library, some funny, others descriptive and one discussing the feeling of being the centre of attention, when surrounded by pupils peering out from classrooms all around.

The next stage is to find a background to enhance and complement poems using FlickrStorm.
