Once Upon A Dream - Dream Jar Activity
Claire Williams, class teacher said: "Imagine a dream ... when your whole class completely astound you with their poetry writing! Except that wasn't a dream, it was reality! Inspired by the picturebook Imagine a Day by Robert Gonsalves and Sarah L. Thomson, we wrote our own Imagine a Dream poems by the light of the dream jars that we've made. I was completely blown away by the children's creativity, imagination and perseverance experimenting with a new poetry form and I hope they feel as proud of themselves as I feel of them!"
We love the dream jars the pupils' created and think it's wonderful that the jars will shine brightly in the classroom all year!
Thank you to Claire for sharing her pupils' awesome ideas, we hope it offers some inspiration with writing poetry to our blog readers too.
