Bonfire Night - Writing Explosive Haiku Poems - PowerPoint Lesson

KS2 Poetry Writing

A great way to introduce your class to writing Haiku.

The PowerPoint takes you through the process. It starts by explaining what a Haiku poem is and then gets the children recognising and counting syllables.

They then have a chance to complete some half-finished Haiku. This can be done as a whole class, in pairs or groups or individually.

Finally, the children are given some word prompts to help get them started on writing their own Bonfire Night Haiku.

The Teachers’ Notes are written in the form of a script explaining what is contained in each slide of the PowerPoint and giving suggestions for you to explore with the children. There is also a section giving you some facts about Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot to share with the children.
