As part of our National Poetry Day celebrations on the 4th September, Year 4 recited the poem 'Cargoes' by John Masefield. Take a look at our performance.
We then had a go at writing a new verse for the poem. Here are some of the results:
Wooden gondola of Venice, treasure of Italy
Gliding gracefully down the Grand Canal
With a cargo of tourists
Visitors and cameras
Suitcases, sweethearts and singing Gondoliers.
Joe and Grace F
Chinese container ship
Butting through the Pacific
With a cargo of cars,
Costumes and books,
Magazines and dolls and fluffy teddy bears.
Esme and Luke
Huge, mighty tanker coming from the Atlantic
Charging through the waves like a knife spreading butter
With a cargo of liquids,
Crude oil and chemicals,
Gasoline, diesel and petroleum.
