List Poem Performers

This week in English the children have been engaging with and performing poetry.

We've created mind maps on what we as a class thought poetry is, identified and listed features found in poetry, for example; repeated phrases. We then looked at a range of list poems and realised that a list poem is a list of items, people, places, or ideas that are related to a particular subject. For example, an apple. Then we listened to a list poem called ‘To do list’ and discussed how we could turn the poem in to a performance. After that we worked in small groups to read and performing a range of list poems to the class.
