Here it is…as promised…our fantastic sound collector poem about the great outdoors. We each worked on our own verses and then we used a line from everyone’s work to make a class poem. We are very pleased with it…

Class 1 explored the Great Outdoors,

Dressed all in brown and green,

Put every sound into a bag

And carried them off the scene.

The whistling of the blackbird

The blowing of the wind

The jumping of the frog

across the calm stream

The singing of the robin

The falling of the water

The clipping of the horses

running quickly by.

The drifting of the lake

The pecking of the woodpecker

The revving of the motorbike

on the long road

The hooting of the owl

The crashing of the waves

The stamping of the feet

running down the path

The hissing of the snake

The ticking of the crickets

The dripping of the raindrops

as it starts to rain

The clicking of the grasshopper

The meowing of the kitten

The whooshing of the trees

blowing in the breeze

The tweeting of the birds

The woofing of the dog

The beeping of the horn

in the busy traffic jam

Class 1 called this morning

They didn’t leave their name

They left us only silence

Life will never be the same.
