Yr 4 Poetry Unit 1A: Creating Images

Children use poems by Christina Rossetti to appreciate how writers use figurative and expressive language to create images and atmosphere – alliteration, similes, powerful verbs and adverbs.

Children perform one of her poems and write a poem on a similar theme.

Hamilton’s English planning covers all aspects of English, including SPAG, within the context of a wide range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry genres, such as traditional tales, recounts and performance poems.
