First World War poetry plan Year 6/7 Wilfred Owen Dulce et Decorum est outstanding teacher WWI

First World War poetry plan Year 6/7 Wilfred Owen Dulce et Decorum est outstanding teacher WWI

This differentiated literacy lesson is about Wilfred Owen’s iconic First World War poem Dulce et Decorum est and is ideal for a Year 6 or 7 class. It is differentiated three ways. The lesson begins by introducing children to the poet, whose work they listen to as part of an animated video clip. Partner/group work then enables the pupils to analyse the poem and explore the language used before writing their own individual version. This document includes the lesson plan with plenary, three differentiated versions of sections of the poem and information/pictures to display on the board for extra inspiration. I have not been observed teaching this particular lesson but I have received an outstanding grade in all my most recent literacy observations.
