Poetry: The 6 Room Poem

In class today, and on Friday, we were talking about a poem called a 6 room poem. It has a series of 6 rooms going like this: Room 1=Image or photograph, where you think of something amazing or something interesting to you but don’t think of a poem. Room 2= Colours, is it dark, hazy, shiny, bright, colourful? You think of the colours that the image has. Room 3= Sound, what can you hear? What kind of sound is it? Room 4= Do you have any questions about the image? Room 5= Describe your feelings about the image. Room 6= Look over the poem and find a phrase, word or line that feels important and repeat it 3 times.

Here are 2 examples of 6 room poems:

Small village, peaceful and sunny

nnSunny, shiny, daylight

nnnn Peaceful day, warm with play

nnnnnn Why not a bustling city or road?

nnnnnnnn I feel happy, in my happy place

Happy,njbjbjbjbjbjbjbjHappy,                       Happy.

Here is my next example:

I’m at the door of the clothes shop, so big in size

Inside is the chattering of people, to find the right size

The light is so beautiful, with all sorts of colours

Does this have to be so big? How many people come here?

I’m excited, amazed and will want everything

Shopping,

nnnnnnnn Shopping,

nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Shopping

Aim: To learn how to do the perfect 3rd arabesque in ballet.

Equipment:

How to achieve:

  1. First, you need to go into the center of a big space, with a flat surface.
  2. Next, point your left foot to the back, making sure the center of gravity is centered.
  3. Now, transfer your body weight to the front, still making sure the center of gravity is centered.
  4. After, reach both arms forward, the right arm higher than the left.
  5. Now, find a spot for you to focus on, preferably past your fingers on your right.
  6. After, make sure you are balanced and lift your leg slowly focusing on the focus spot.
  7. Finally, hold your leg up and you should now have a perfect arabesque.
