I’m delighted to let you know that the Years 3-4 book for Contemporary Children’s Literature has gone to the printers and will be on sale from 30 April. I’m really looking forward to seeing this book in print!
To find out more information about this book and the extracts included in it, please have a look at our website.
Sunday, 17th April is International Haiku Poetry Day!
I’m sure you will have heard of a haiku, the most famous of the Japanese poetry forms. But did you know there is a lesser-known form called a tanka? This form of poetry has five lines with 5, 7, 5, 7, 7 syllables in the sequence. Here’s an example about the rain:
Short April showers;
drizzle, downpours, indoor play;
thunder and lightning;
welly boots for the puddles;
cold drops dribbling down my neck.
It comes from Cracking English Grammar in Key Stage 2 – tankas are a great way of getting children to practise using semicolons!
More information about this book can be found on our website.
Enjoy your break!
