Pets and Poems - Poetry for KS2
The short, animated film, shows a cat reciting David Horner’s poem, ‘Walkies’. Your children will love watching and listening to this.

A copy of the text of the poem is included so that the children can follow along with the reading as well as reading it out loud themselves.

The teacher’s notes give you a number of ideas as to how you might work with this poem and get the children creating their own, including:

looking at the rhyming scheme
counting syllables and stressed syllables
writing similar poems about their pets
making up imaginary pets and zany animals
working with syllables to create alliterating poems

All the materials are fully adaptable, so you can make them your own if you wish.
