This week in English, we have been focusing on poetry and writing a diary entry from the perspective of a cloud. We went outside and used our imaginations to visualise where different clouds have been around the world. We looked at a variety of settings from a birds eye view and wrote a description about them in a diary entry. Click here for extra practice: clouds-acrostic-poem-
