    All very well read. I particularly liked Alice’s “There is no end to the beautiful river” – a clever ‘sting’ for a powerful poem.

    and Kerri’s
    “…vanishing into the distance. Will we ever see our river again?”

    Well done, the geography poets of LL and HA.

    Fantastic poems! I’ve never been good near water and now I may never go near a river again! Thanks Josh R! “waiting for an unexpecting victim”. My phobia has increased ten fold through their briliant ability to bring the rivers to life in my head!

    Well done all!

    An impressive and differenciated group of poems which are fabulously presented, well done Year 8!

    A lovely cross curricular piece of work, Geography and Literacy.

    The images conjured up by Alice, Kerrie and Marie are lovely, however, I found the stoccato style of Josh’s poem particularly powerful and effective.

    Well done – what a great opportunity your teacher has given you.

    I liked the idea of this hidden monster ready to drag me down Josh R, when I am out canoeing I often get surprised by odd currents moving in all sorts of directions.

    I loved the mix of destructive, useful, erosive and peaceful. Well done all.

    I like your poems. We are studying Europe in my geography class and have been discussing navigable rivers and how useful they are. I’ll play your poems for my students tomorrow. Thanks for sharing your great work with us.

    Hey Tara and Kerri I am a student at the University of South Alabama in the United States! I think you both did a great job! I loved both of your poems about the river! Keep up the great work!

    Josh R and Josh J you too did a wonderful job I sure hate to be by the river Josh R was talking about sounded kind of dangerous.

    Josh R and Alice,

    I listened to your poems as a requirement for Dr. Strange’s class at University South Alabama. I like the way your voice expressed the tone of the poem. I knew that Josh R’s river was alive and dangerous, and Alice’s river was alive, ever-changing. Keep up the good work. Reading with expression is not always easy, but you did a great job.
