In our final English unit before Easter, class 3 worked on a poem called the Cave of Curiosity. I was so impressed with how much they achieved in a week – we identified the features, learnt about abstract nouns and the apostrophe of possession, used our senses to think of new lines for the poem and then created our own amazing poems with the same features. I was so impressed with the final outcomes that we all chose our favourite line from our own poems to create one big whole class poem. Here it is….

The Cave of Curiosity

In the cave of curiosity, I created

Paper crunching in a crocodile’s mouth

The sound of a ruler snapping

And the smell of a juicy tomato squeezing all over the table.

In the cave of curiosity, I created

A happy hippo ambling along in a dusty desert

A dog buying a can of beans in the ocean

and the touch of a soggy goldfish.

In the cave of curiosity, I created

An elephant’s trunk wrapping around a tree

A guinea-pig riding on a go-kart with boosters on the back

and the sea eating some grass in a tree.

In the cave of curiosity, I created

The taste of a sea urchin in the swallow water

The smell of raw meat on a summer’s beach

And some sizzling sausages whizzing around in bright circles.

In the cave of curiosity, I created

The sight of a crazy hamster riding a little aeroplane shooting tiny fireworks

The touch of a golden doodle’s wet nose wetting the bedding

And a tiny tiger tickling her babies.

In the cave of curiosity, I created

A giraffe’s head peeking over a tiny fence

A silly adder on a burning bbq

And a fluffy teddy bear saying ‘hello teddy’.

In the cave of curiosity, I created

The sound of silence with my nice friends dancing with me

A person drinking a cocktail while watching the sun set down

And the touch of tentacles playing with dirty hair.

In the cave of curiosity, I created

A box of lies lying on a leopard’s back

The smell of stinky cheese from miles away

And the sound of a ticking clock inside a crocodile.

In the cave of curiosity, I captured

A bird singing in the morning

A sound in a box rustling about

And an octopus in the darkness of the ocean.

It is just fab!! Well done Class 3!

I wonder what you would put in your cave of curiosity?
