Go for gold with our new Summer Sports Poetry Pack!
This is a five-lesson English unit of poetry planning for Years 3 and 4, based on creating shape poetry themed on the summer olympic games.

In this unit, pupils will research different olympic sports and work on developing vocabulary to describe the different movements involved. Pupils will investigate shape poetry and begin to understand the relationship between the language used in the poem and the shape of the words on the page. There is also a grammar focus on adding suffixes to form comparative adjectives. At the end of the unit the pupils will work towards a visual performance of a poem that is created in the shape of the olympic rings.

The objectives of the unit for pupils are:
• To investigate shape poetry
• To retrieve information from non-fiction
• To apply grammar rules for adding suffixes
• To prepare a group poetry performance
• To create a shape poem

The PDF file contains 5 full literacy lesson plans and all accompanying pupil resources. This unit would work really well with topics about summer, sports, olympics, going for gold or healthy bodies.
