Kenning is used in poetry to create different effects, They can be combined to make a poem called a Kennings in which a collection of kenning lines are combined to describe an object. This is a great exercise for analysing different forms of poetry.

The teachers’ notes give some interesting background information about the origins of kennings. Then there are further suggestions for developing the work started in the powerpoint presentation. All the materials are fully adaptable, so you can make them your own if you wish. Please let us know how you have used this resource. We would love to hear from you.

Dinosaurs, Facts, Fun and a Touch of Creative Writing

(0)
Dinosaurs, Facts, Fun and a Touch of Creative Writing is a PowerPoint presentation with a wealth of hidden gems. David Horner, the celebrated children’s poet, has written a rhyme to go with each of the eight dinosaurs celebrated here. Each rhyme has been modelled on a traditional nursery rhyme - can you guess which ones? The wonderfully unique and stunning illustrations were drawn and painted by his long time collaborator Anne Hodgkiss. As well as the wonderful rhymes and brilliant illustrations there are facts about each of our dinosaurs in the ‘Dinosaurus Factosaurus’ section. We finish the presentation with a short video showing the children how they might create some Haiku poems about these dinosaurs and what we know about them. If you enjoy this resource then keep an eye out for our other Dinosaurus resources. All the money raised from the sale of our resources is donated to a local northwest charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.
