Half Term Learning Challenge


Learn A Poem Challenge

On National Poetry Day last week, we all looked at the work of Valerie Bloom and produced some interesting and impressive work.

Building on this, your challenge over this half term, is to find a poem or a part of a poem (if its long!) and learn it so that you can share or perform it to your class. 

  • You can include actions where appropriate
  • Remember what Valerie Bloom said about how she remembers her poems…
  • Be prepared to explain why you chose your poem

There will also be the opportunity if chosen, to share your learning with the rest of the school through Good Work Assemblies.

To help with your choice and research here are some examples of poets that write poetry that is high quality, occasionally very funny and easy to learn.
