Performance poetry - Analysis, Performance and Interpretation (Duffy, Cummings and Bronte)

Performance poetry - Analysis, Performance and Interpretation (Duffy, Cummings and Bronte)

Based on post graduate research into performance poetry and how it can be linked to a class novel to improve understanding of themes, interpreting texts and making connections across texts. Designed to be used with KS3 to build confidence and enjoyment of studying poetry before GCSE study. Powerpoint with a guide to activities, worksheet for notes from observing the performance and copies of poems for use. This could be used as a stand alone sequence of lessons on poetry or connected to reading a novel with themes of child/parent relationships or cities. Originally intended to be used with Katherine Rundell's novel Rooftoppers but can easily be connected with another novel.

Trees: our Autumn environment

Trees: our Autumn environment

This animated Power Point asks the audience to consider ways in which trees are important to us. Pupils are asked to consider the changes that are happening in trees during Autumn and why we see such beautiful colours in the environment during this season. Poetry about Autumn is introduced where pupils count the syllables and spot patterns in the lines and then a descriptive paragraph about Autumn is displayed and the audience is asked to contrast how the author feels about the approach of Winter. Pupils are shown a poem about the wind and are invited to discuss how the wind is personified. Finally they are invited to write a sensory description about their favourite season. I include word documents which support the PowerPoint which could be used for homework or further investigations/creative writing. Suitable for ages 8+

Christmas Countdown - Christmas Poetry Ideas for KS2

Christmas Countdown - Christmas Poetry Ideas for KS2

As we get closer to Christmas here is a great idea to turn that countdown to Christmas into a fun poem. This is a clearly explained and carefully structured PowerPoint lesson to encourage writing rich in vocabulary - as befits the season! Wordplay is at the centre of it all, so an ideal activity to get pupils – alone or in pairs - digging into their dictionaries. The produced pieces are ideal too for any end of term assembly. The resource includes: A Powerpoint presentation which takes the children through the whole process stage by stage. A full set of Teachers' Notes that give additional ideas for each slide. A printable sheet for the children to use to draft their work. Five Christmas decorated writing frames for the children's finished work. All the money raised from the sale of this resource we donate to a local charity for children called MedEquip4Kids. We hope you enjoy this resource. If you do we would much appreciate you leaving us a review and don't forget to tell your colleagues and friends about us.
