Writing

Lesson 1

Learning Objective: To identify and comment on writer’s use of language, structure and presentation for effect.

 

I can:

  -  Identify the subject matter and use of language in different poems

  -  Express a personal point of view about a poem.

Task 1: read the poems. What do you like / dislike about them?

Input: look at the features of poetry. Do you recognise any?

Task 2: complete the table. Choose 5 feature, write a definition (use a dictionary to help you), give an example.

Lesson 2:

Learning Objective: To use grammar and vocabulary to create impact and enhance meaning for the reader.

 

I can:

  • Select appropriate language suited for the text type.

  • Use similes and metaphors to create impact for the reader.

Task 1: create a mind map of everything that you think of when you think of Christmas

Task 2:

 

For this exercise, you need to think about what you really enjoy about Christmas, using lots of powerful verbs and adjectives. Then reflect upon someone who isn’t as lucky as you and what they might be experiencing.

Remember, a poem doesn’t have to always rhyme; repetition can be used to create a poem.

This is where the repetitive use of ‘Think’ will make a poem if it doesn’t rhyme.

 

Use the word mats below to help you with vocabulary. 

Use this table to plan you poem
