Friday 23rd September 2011 – Maple Class’ Performance Poetry

Filed under: English,Year 4 @ 9:24 am

Last week, Maple class were looking at the poems of Christina Rossetti, in particular, the poems she wrote about the weather.  We studied the words she used and discussed why they were effective, looked at the structure and rhythm of each poem and also whether the poem rhymed.

At the end of this unit of work, the children worked in groups to perform one of the weather poems using musical instruments as an accompaniment.  They had to think hard about how to perform the poem according to the rhythm of it and where to use the musical instruments to add to the performance.

Have a look at these budding poets!
