Rainforest Poetry

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio. 'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.

Unseen Poetry GCSE

A one off lesson tackling the challenges of the Unseen poem in three easy steps. This lesson is focused towards Eduqas Literature - Component 2 - Section C (i) where students are asked to analyse one poem before their comparison question and it addresses the AO1 & AO2 requirements for that question. It is easily adaptable for other exam boards and KS3 to introduce them to the GCSE course and (hopefully) removes the fear associated with this element of the exam.
