Christmas - PowerPoint Lesson - Writing  Cool Christmas Kennings

In this PowerPoint lesson your children will find out how to write wonderful Christmas Kennings poems.

Ideal for children in KS2 .

The PowerPoint lesson takes the children through the whole process. It starts by explaining what kennings are and their Anglo-Saxon background.

They then look at a few modern kennings before being shown how to create some Christmas kennings about Santa. These are then transformed into a poem and then a riddle.

Finally, the children are given some picture prompts to help get them started on writing their own magical Christmas kennings.

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.

Also included with this resource are a set of colour and black and white Christmas writing frames for the children to use when they write out their finished poems and riddles.

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