SENSES POETRY - KS1

We’re Having a Party!

We’re having a party!
What can you see?
Bouncing balloons
and sparkly ribbons.

We’re having a party!
What can you hear?
toe-tapping tunes
and chuckling children.

We’re having a party!
What can you smell?
The flickering flame
of birthday candles.

We’re having a party!
What can you taste?
Sandwiches, cake
and plenty of sweets.

We’re having a party!
What can you feel?
The love and the hugs
of all of your friends. 


This poem can serve as a model for thinking about the five senses with KS1. Start by thinking of a scenario, which could be relevant to other things you may have been looking at in class - pirates, the seasons, sports, festivals etc. Next, think of a repeated phrase, to be used at the beginning of each stanza. Each stanza then discusses one of the five senses. Simple! This can be done as shared writing with younger children, or group or individual work for older ones, Enjoy!
