Class Poems inspired by the book 'Tattered Sails'

In Earth class this term, we have been learning about poetry and how to make poems using word classes and figurative language. Using the book Tattered Sails, the children each created their own unique poems from a characters perspective about their parlous journey to a new world. Here are some of their creations.
