The Magic Box Poetry Mini-Unit

**Aligned with the 2014 National Curriculum of England

Included are the resources to follow a sequence of sessions where they develop their own ideas before applying them to the style of the model poem.

Children are introduced to the poem and decide what they would include in their own magic box. After reviewing poetic devices, children return to their ideas and include poetic devices to make them stronger before drafting their own poems.

As a maths and arts link, children can then design and make the nets of their magic boxes before building them into their boxes. Children can then add items and illustrations to their boxes representing the different ideas from their poems.
