Today, Wednesday, 27 April, we’ve spent most of our time at Barnard Grove, making final choices about the poems to go into our boxes. With Gilly’s help and encouragement the boxes are looking brilliant.
Having spent most of the day on the computer, arranging, rearranging, moving margins, titles and stanzas,changing font styles etc. my eyes look like this 88|
Stop laughing at me Chantelle – and yes I’m chilled now thank you!
One more session to go this Friday and we’re on schedule to get everything finished. Must just mention though, as if being up to our eyeballs in shells, pebbles, claws, photos, glue, drills, poems, floppy discs, acetate etc. etc. wasn’t enough, we’ve got the builders in refurbishing toilets!
My Version of the Matthew Arnold poem, ‘Dover Beach’
The classroom is not calm today.
The poet is turning green and all rhymed out.
The artist is glued and cut out.
The teaching assistants are frazzled and wiped out,
The teacher is worn down and spaced out.
Pupils are in danger of time out! ;D
