Christmas Performance Poetry for KS1 or KS2.
A five-lesson literacy unit of poetry planning, based on performing Christmas poetry. The planning is adaptable for Key Stages 1 and 2, with ideas included for how to use it younger or older classes.
In this unit, pupils will read the poem ‘Sly Santa Claus’ and they will consider how the sounds and language patterns come alive when the poem is read aloud, particularly focussing on the use of verbs and onomatopiea. Children will work towards creating their version of the Christmas poem and turning it into an effective performance.
The aims of the unit for pupils are:
• To listen to a classic Christmas poem being read aloud
• To identify verbs and onomatopoeic phrases
• To prepare a poetry performance by planning actions or props
• To perform a poem to an audience
• To identify successful features of a performance
The PDF file contains 5 full literacy lesson plans, copies of the poem and all accompanying pupil resources.

A great resource. I'm looking forward to using it with my class, thank you!
Great resource, can’t wait to use this with my pupils during the festive season.
Bought as part of a bundle. Such a useful resource so glad I purchased. Very festive 😁
I used this when our class did our Christmas assembly. Saved me having to think of anything and the poems are really cute! Think it helped boost the confidence of some of them too.
Brilliant, thanks again!
