A Poet’s Paintbox – what do displays mean to children?


Poetry display

A poet’s paintbox display

That was a year 5 (age 10) class being interviewed about a display that had built up in the classroom over the course of half a term. I think it’s interesting that they took pride in their work and continued to look at the display even after it had been up for a while. Perhaps the people who voted for

in the recent poll  were onto something.
