The Pebble in my Pocket

We starting off our Year 4 English learning with an information book called The Pebble in My Pocket. It uses geologists' understanding of the earth's history to follow the long journey of one particular pebble.

At the same time we're looking at one particular pebble of our own really carefully.

We did this on Friday, and took turns to handle our pebble and to describe it and say what it made us think of.

Then we kneaded our descriptions and thoughts into a poem shape.

Here's the pebble and the poem from 4G:

like a hard potato
like a small mountain
a massage stone
made of different rocks
grey and cream
it has a design 
it's exciting 
unusual to find a rock with stripes
crystal white like paint
x marks the spot
it's oval
like the beak of a bird
it's bumpy
you could scratch yourself
three toes
like the claws of a dinosaur
it has a missing half
orange inside
Poseidon's beard
it smells like it's been in the sea
