Window Poetry, Pastels and Henna

Today we did some Window Poetry 🙂 We each stood looking out of a different window. We divided a sheet of A4 paper into 6, a bit like a window, and using the following prompts created a poem 🙂

What do you see straight ahead of you?
What is on the left?
Something is different today – what is it? It needn’t be of great significance.
Write any line that follows on here, but include the word ‘sometimes’ or the word ‘always’.
What else can you see? A detail. In these lines,perhaps suggest the time of day or the time of year.

This is what the girls came up with 🙂




Loved doing this 🙂

I came across this fabulous eye sketch on Pinterest a while ago and so today we had a go at creating our own using pastels which are a bit messy but I love the shading effects you can get with them. I think we all had fun doing it anyway 🙂

Poppy and F got themselves some more henna whilst in London and so there has been lots of henna doodling 🙂
