KS1 Spring poetry 5 day unit

KS1 Spring poetry 5 day unit

This resource is a week's poetry unit based around the theme of spring. It is perfect for using with KS1, as it is so interactive. The resource includes the curriculum objectives for both year 1 and 2, detailed lesson plans for 5 days and all the resources needed, including pictures, poem and writing templates. The first 3 days are based on a spring poem by Shirley Hughes. The children have the opportunity to learn the poem by heart and perform it. They go on a spring walk for inspiration and write their own poems. On day 4 they use their senses to explore spring flowers and vegetables (the only lesson you will need to bring anything for) and day 5 gives them the opportunity to write their own independent poems. Every lesson gives details about how to differentiate for different ability levels.This is a really fun unit to teach. I hope you enjoy it too!
