Creative Writing: Using Symbolism

Creative Writing: Using Symbolism

A low-mid ability lesson teaching pupils how to use symbolism in their writing. Guides them through step-by-step and provides a writing frame for weaker pupils to use. Success criteria/ self-assessment uses Alan Peat sentences but can be adapted to suit appropriate sentence structures. Used to secure understanding of the emotions in When We Two Parted from the AQA anthology- but they can easily access this without a thorough understanding of the poem.

Christmas poetry literacy lesson - cinquain poem writing - Years 4, 5 and 6 - outstanding teacher

Christmas poetry literacy lesson - cinquain poem writing - Years 4, 5 and 6 - outstanding teacher

This differentiated Christmas literacy lesson is suitable for Years 4, 5 and 6. It explains the structure of a cinquain poem and involves children working in pairs to brainstorm vocabulary ideas which they will use to help them write their own individual poems. It includes a learning objective, success criteria, teaching input, a starter, three way differentiated main activity and peer assessment plenary. This bundle also includes a PowerPoint for the teaching input and a writing frame for lower ability children. The poems produced are an ideal shape and length for writing up for display work onto a bauble or Christmas tree shape (also included). (I have not been observed teaching this particular lesson but I have received an Outstanding grade for all literacy observations in the last few years from my head teacher, as well as more senior outside observers.)
