Y6 CNED group create their own Dada poems

Y6 CNED (Alice, Lili and Zoe) have had a go to write their own Dada poem by following the instructions of the French-Romanian poet Tristan Tzara. They cut some words in a newspaper, mixed them up and randomly picked them out and stuck them in on a piece of paper without changing anything. They created some unique and inspiring pieces of work amongst the weird and wonderful!
To construct a Dada poem, the language should be broken into syllables and individual letters, and then reconfigured as meaningless sounds.
