The Book of the Road

Today Room 4 completed our poem titled 'The Book of the Road' using the template provided by School Kit.

The poem was originally written by Kendrick Smithyman, which is all about a journey and the bulk of the poem is made up of directions from place to place. We used the same format as Smithyman, but we changed the name of the places and roads to those we found on Google maps to get to Richmond.

To view our poem we had to wear special glasses, as it had been written in blue and red overlapping pen. We discussed the fact that this in itself was a metaphor - we have to look closely and interpret the hidden meaning behind a poem. We also had a great time exploring the world with our glasses!
