A KS3 lesson based around an introduction to Poetry for Year 9. The lesson gets student to think about how to deconstruct poems through the medium of pop-songs. Worksheet for Lesson 2 is attached.
Lesson 1 also covers how to deconstruct Poetry using the anagram ART WARS.
The aim of this unit is to teach the metalanguage of poetry and give students a critical voice when writing about the choices in poetry. The poets used can be tailored to your class but some poems are suggested in the unit. The outcome of the unit is a comparative analysis of poems.
A whole SOW, complete with PPTs and activities designed for year 8 or 9 to ease into the new GCSE specification (1-9)
This uses a range of poetry from the old AQA anthologies for many resources, and focuses on comparison skills, techniques, structures and effects

Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors.
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors.
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy!
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted.
Also a bank of poems that I developed using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop.
MAY UPDATE: I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource!
