Quickly / Slowly poems

We have been looking at the poem ‘Slowly’ by James Reeves. Inspired by this, we wrote our own quickly / slowly poems. We started by analysing Reeves’ poem, and then drawing pictures of things that moved quickly or slowly. We thought carefully about adding detail by including adjectives and where it was happening. Then we wrote a first draft and edited it carefully in purple before writing up the final version in our neatest handwriting. We had so many fantastic ideas we hope you’ll enjoy!
