Fireworks Poems Display

When doing shape poetry with year 3, we decided to do shape poetry about fireworks. The children wrote poetry and then set it out in a firework shape. They published it on black backing paper using gel pens (yes it takes a while, but is worth it!) and then we stuck them onto the black backing on the board. The result was a display that looked like fireworks exploding in the night sky and it looked as if children had actually written on the board itself!
