Very popular poetry planning for the seaside/under the sea topic!
In this unit, children will read and listen to seaside or sea poems by Edward Lear and to consider how the sounds and language patterns come alive when they are read aloud. They will have the opportunity to create their own versions of the sea poems and to perform them.
The aims of the unit for pupils are:
• To listen to a range of seaside poems being read aloud and engage imaginatively with them
• To identify patterns of language and repeated 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 accompanying pupil resources. Perfect for National Poetry Month!
