Happy Children Inspired to Learn

Spring Term 2023



The first half of this term we will be exploring and understanding poetry. 

We will explore different types of poetry including sonnets, haikus, limericks and free verse poems. We will look at how they are laid out and our response to the different types. 


We will then explore the following literacy devices as the building blocks of our poems. 

  • similes
  • ambitious adjectives 
  • alliteration 
  • adverbs of manner
  • prepositions
  • verbs


We will explore some immersive techniques to help us bring our poetry to life by acting out the verses we have created.


We will model our own poetry on the below Sabre Tooth Tiger poem, writing our own version about a Woolly Mammoth.
