'Animals and Plants'  Poetry Planning Year 1 and 2
Download our popular two-week literacy unit of poetry planning for Years 1 and 2. This unit is perfect to go with a living things topic and is built around objectives from the National Curriculum.

In this unit, children will read and listen to nature poems by Christina Rossetti and consider how the sounds and language patterns come alive when the poems are read aloud. Pupils will have the opportunity to create their own versions of the nature poems and to perform them.

The aims of the unit for pupils are:
• To listen to classic poems being read aloud
• To identify patterns of language and recurring phrases
• To use the voice in different ways to express ideas
• To perform a poem off by heart

The PDF file contains 10 full literacy lesson plans, copies of the poems and all accompanying pupil resources. Perfect for National Poetry Month!
