Summer Poetry
Download our new Summer Performance Poetry Pack, a five-lesson English unit for KS1, based on performing summer poetry.

In this unit, pupils will read a classic summer poem about a baby playing with the sand on the beach. Pupils will have a chance to consider how the sounds and language patterns come alive when the poem is read aloud. There is also a grammar focus on expanded nouns and using command sentences. Children will work towards creating their own version of the summer poem and turning it into an effective performance, which could be used for a summer-themed assembly or celebration.

The aims of the unit for pupils are:
• To listen to a classic summer poem being read aloud
• To use expanded nouns
• To use command sentences
• To prepare a poetry performance including actions
• To perform a poem to an audience

The PDF file contains 5 full literacy lesson plans, copies of the poem and all accompanying pupil resources.
