War Poem from Woodford

Year 4 have been exploring forms of poetry this term. We studied Japanese Art and poetry forms of Haiku, Tanka and Cinquain, all of which have particular syllable patterns. World War Two was the focus for writing list poems. We combined our favourite images from Japan with music and our own poems using Windows Move Maker. We experimented with timings, video and music effects to create what we thought was an interesting “movie poem”. The following Movie was created by Matthew Philpotts and is an effective record of World War Two! More examples to come!

Hello Matthew,

What a great piece of work! My Year 4 class were really interested to learn about The Second World War from a British perspective. We learn about WW2 over here, but about what happened to The Australian and New Zealand soldiers. In the UK the soldiers who fought in the 2 World Wars are remembered on Remeberance Day on November 11th, but here we remember the Soldiers on ANZAC Day. I wonder if you can find out what that stands for, and when it is?
Keep up the great work Matthew! I might have to get my class to try writing some movie poems, it looks cool!
