On a damp, cool Autumn day we snuggled together to read some of Shirley Hughes Autumn poems taken from one of our favourite books; “Out and About A First Book of Poems” (ISBN 978-1-4063-7242-7).
The boys then created their own Autumn poems and we recorded them on some of the lantern paper we used to make our story lanterns. S’s poem rhymed, like Shirley’s poems and A wrote about all the Autumn things around us.
We then followed some instructions to turn the paper into a lantern box.
Our beautiful Autumn poem lanterns.
