‘Have I Got News For You?’

Today some lucky children in Y3 had the opportunity to take part in a ‘Have I Got News for You?’ event at Sheffield Town Hall. The event was run by ESCAL and involved a day full of news and literacy based activities.

In the morning we completed some activities which involved; interviewing children from other schools; completing a news based quiz; deciding if A.T.Wolf is guilty of murdering the three little pigs.

In the afternoon we had a workshop with author and poet, Conrad Burdekin. Conrad performed some of his hilarious poems for us. Then he taught us how to write our own poems! We then had to perform our poems in front of an audience.

Here are the poems we created:

Tomatoes

As red as my mum when she’s angry,

Smell like old granny trumps,

Red evil devils,

I’d rather have the mumps,

They feel like alien bogies,

They slap me in the face,

The seeds are little ninjas,

They go all over the place.

 

We Love Jelly

Gooey, chewy,

Nice and sweet,

I would have it for a treat,

Raspberry red,

Strawberry pink,

It will stain your tongue like ink,

Wobbling, bobbling,

On a plate,

I will eat it with my mate,
