Click here for download help The five lessons in this unit give children the opportunity to read and listen to a classic harvest poem and to consider how the sounds and language patterns come alive when it is read aloud, in particular its use of verbs and commands. Children will have the opportunity to engage imaginatively with the poem and to create their own version of a harvest poem to perform aloud. The aims of the unit for pupils are: • To listen to a classic harvest poem being read aloud • To identify verbs • To use command sentences • To prepare a poetry performance including actions • To perform a poem to an audience The final performances would also be perfect for a harvest assembly or harvest festival.
