Poetry linked to Stone Age (2 week unit)

(5)
Two week unit based on ‘Ning Nang Nong’ but a Stone Age take on the poem. Main focus is on language - prepositional phrases, noun phrases, rhyme. Touches on onomatopoeia/alliteration when looking at features - this could be expanded and be two separate lessons if you wanted to make the unit longer. We’ve used this as a stepping stone to historical fiction. Cold task - writing a poem based on The Stone Age Learn ‘On a Grassy Hill’ - story map Identifying key features Noun phrases Prepositional phrases Rhythm and rhyme (creatiing a whole-class rhyming dictionary) Planning a poem (with scaffold) Writing Stone Age poem Perform poem to class. Each day there is a ‘teacher slide’ to explain each lesson. All resources included. PLEASE NOTE: I do not have PPT on my mac. I have copied the pages from the Smart Notebook file onto Keynote and have exported this into ppt. I therefore do not know what the formatting is like in this format. -This works best if you are able to use the Notebook file-
