Our Project Outline. What it will look Like!

In planning out the look of our project we agreed on this outline:

The project will involve all the year two children and supporting adults. It will also involve all teachers and learning support assistants.
We will plan the project in Autumn Term Two and start collecting our evidence in Spring Term One.

This Blog will be our published research. After we have collected and discussed our research we will work on publishing this Blog to as many people as possible and ask them to comment on our project.

We will test our ideas by trying out five different cause and effect projects:

We will get children and Adults in Year Two sharing more poems, by reading and perform them.

We will have a poetry writing and performing competition for all children.

We will challenge teachers to read three poems every week to their classes.

We will get all the teachers to write a poem and we will choose the poem we like the best. The teacher who wrote that poem will then teach the children in all the classes about how the thought about their poem and how they wrote it.

We will try and get a real poet to visit the school and work with us.

These ideas will take place in an enrichment lesson, every Thursday.
The ideas will last for half a term.

We will interview grown ups and children, asking them about poems at the start and at the end of the project.

We will collect information using questionnaires and surveys.
We will collect one poem from everyone at the start of the project and at the end of the project.

Dear Reader, please publish a comment so we can read what you think and discuss your ideas.

I think this project is very exciting. It is a good idea to involve the teachers, as children can see that poetry is real and it will give them the opportunity to understand all the stages a poet must go through in order to write a poem.

What a fanastic idea. This is something completely new & a great concept.
I think this will enhance the young minds & encourage new ideas.
It will enable the children to explore different writings & comment upon them.
It will be very interesting to read the children's interpretations of actual poems.
Good luck kids.

By giving the children this great oppotunity to read and perform poetry it will open their minds to all sorts of imagination.
It is really important that the childrens teachers will be writing their own poems for their class because it gives teaching ..that personal touch rather than reading other published poems.
Who knows, with any luck this project may give birth to a future successful poet?
I wish the teachers and kids good luck.!

What a great idea for all involved at Gearies to learn about poetry and ICT.
I think this is an excellent forum of finding and sharing information on this chosen subject
I am sure we will all learn more about words and there meanings in the form of poetry.

This project is a brilliant way to engage the children at a very young age in the science of research. What an interesting subject to learn more about.To learn and understand what a poem is, the different types and formats of poetry, the use of language and expression of mood and feelings. I look forward to seeing the outcome these budding researchers come to.

Kids, have fun whilst you explore this world of poetry.
