The 5/6 students have been writing cinquains, limericks and haiku poems over the past weeks. This week we are focusing on Japanese haiku poetry, a five line poem with 17 syllables about nature. The following link is an online interactive tool to support brainstorming ideas and structure. http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/interactives/haiku/

Toward those short trees
We saw a hawk descending
On a day in spring.

– Masaoka Shiki



After visiting Lyndoch each week the grade 6 students will be writing about their experience. They will either contribute to the school newsletter, newsletter board at the front gate, or the classroom blog. Keep an eye out for weekly updates on their experience. Image result for hookey

On Tuesday Harry, Annabelle, Gabby and I went to Lyndoch living from 10:00am to 11:30am. George from Lyndoch taught me how to play Hookey and told me a few stories about when he was my age. We had raisin bread and cordial for morning tea. I really enjoyed it.
