Last Night I Saw The City Breathing

We have been studying poetry this week, looking at how to create imagery. Today we responded to the poem ‘Last Night I Saw The City Breathing’ by Andrew Fusek Peters. The children produced some really excellent art inspired by the poem.

Later in the week you will be performing some of the poems we have read this week.

Tell somebody at home what ‘personification’ is. Point out the examples of personification in the poem posted here.

    Yes I think thats how its spelt and personification means that something that isn’t alive is described as if it had human characteristics. For example: the wind whispered through the trees.
