Halloween - PowerPoint Lesson - Writing Blood-Curdling Kennings Poems

Get your KS2 class writing scary Halloween kennings poems.

The PowerPoint takes you through the whole process of writing kennings poetry.

The children meet Vlad the Vampire who tells them what kennings are. More information about the origins of kennings poetry is contained in the Teachers’ Notes.

The children are encouraged to complete two kennings poems, one about Vlad the Vampire and another about a ghost. This can be done as a whole class, in pairs or groups or individually.

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

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.
