Our Good Works assembly this morning showed a stunning progression of development as a student moves through the years at Ficino School. There was quite an array of composition work from the younger students right through to Year Eight. The whole of Year Six read poems they had composed based on ‘Until I Saw the Sea’ by Lilian Moore. Here is a compilation from some of their poems which create brilliant images through the use of literary devices such as similes, metaphors and personification.
Until I Saw the Sea
I did not know
That rolling waves
Could shatter into shards of seamless glass
On the shore
I never knew
That drops of water crashed repetitively
In a musical harmony
Nor did I know before
The sea’s beauty could reach
My heart’s core
In the work presented we are beginning to see combined effect of the structure of the Cambridge curriculum alongside our strong tradition of using the finest material. These two factors provide both the right scaffolding and the open heart to produce outstanding work.
This expression of creativity was not just in composition but could also be seen in some of the beautiful artwork presented; much of which is displayed around the school.
