Performance Poetry in Class 5

Class 5 have been working incredibly hard over the last couple of weeks, learning about and performing a poem called, ‘The Victorian Little Match Girl’.

It’s based on the traditional tale, ‘The Little Match Girl’ by Hans Christian Andersen, first published in 1845.

The children even used their own peg dolls to add animation to their final piece … meaning that this should make the perfect entry for the 2023 Willow Tree Film Festival! Take a look …

The children have really developed their oracy skills – thinking carefully about speed and intonation as they perform – as well as using their facial expressions and body language to bring the story to life.

Excellent learning, Class 5! Well done!
