Bring poetry to life. <br />
A complete unit of work to introduce KS3 students to a wide range of great poetry, from dub poetry performance to Shakespeare's sonnets. <br />
See the plan here to get an overview of the unit: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks3-poetry-whole-complete-scheme-unit-of-work-11173132<br />
Each lesson has a Powerpoint presentation and an accompanying worksheet. Included are lesson objectives, pre-starters, starters, learning activities, application of learning, and plenaries. Differentiation and extension are included where appropriate.<br />
Lessons are designed to generate lots of thinking and discussion. Some have carefully structured group work, some ask students to perform, some are based on images from art - each lesson is different and engaging. Students learn as much from writing their own poems as from analysing poems in detail.<br />
Also featured are materials to help students achieve their best in an extended essay, which would form a natural assessment activity.<br />
Most importantly, everything is easily editable, so you can make it your own. It is complete as it is, but each teacher is different, so it can be used as a foundation for your own planning.

Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors.
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors.
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy!
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted.
Also a bank of poems that I developed using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop.
MAY UPDATE: I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource!
