Arts & Writing
This week’s suggestions are from Sarah, at Writers Club…
Spring Poem – Let’s begin with an obvious one. This beautiful weather just makes me want to write a poem!
Here’s a poem about Easter by Rachael from our Writers Club
My Favourite Things – A list, poem or song lyrics – I am thinking of all the small things I have to be thankful for at the moment: a colourful pair of socks, an attractive mug or jug, books (especially a cosy novel), pork scratchings and a glass of ginger beer, my sister – these are a few of my favourite things!
Book Review – Take a book you are familiar with and tell us about the characters and plot, why you like this book, how it makes you feel and why you would recommend it to others
Describe a Work of Art – Talk about a picture you have created or a work by a famous artist. Describe it, colours, mood, materials and say how it makes you feel.
Keeping Yourself Occupied – What have you been up to in the last few weeks?
Let us know – do you have any fun ideas or helpful advice for other members as this will really help to keep everyone’s spirits up?
