Christmas Poetry Writing Ideas - A Recipe Poem

This Christmas poetry writing idea from Goodeyedeers is a great activity for KS2 children.

They will be creating ‘A Ridiculous Recipe to Make a Cool Christmas’. Or ‘A Revolutionary Recipe to Design a Cuddly Christmas’. Or… I’m sure you get the idea, they will be exploring the world of alliteration.

This is a Powerpoint lesson that will celebrate in some clearly explained, structured writing, not just the festive food, but the extravagance of the whole occasion. Wordplay is at the heart of it all. And it’ll be the most fun a class will ever have with dictionaries!

The finished poems would be ideal for an assembly performance.

The resource includes:

A Powerpoint presentation which takes the children through the whole process stage by stage.
A full set of Teachers’ Notes that give additional ideas for each slide.
A printable sheet for the children to use to draft their work.
Five Christmas decorated writing frames for the children’s finished work.

All the money raised from the sale of this resource we donate to a local charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.
