Literacy Online. Every child literate - a shared responsibility.

SJ L2 cover image May 2015

In this dreamy poem, a girl reflects on a summer in which she “took the chance” to leap into the sea. The poem uses an extended image of the passing of time to emphasise how important the leap was: she will remember what being in mid-air felt like long after other reminders of the day have gone.
