Next week in Literacy we will be looking at poetry, and specifically poetic form. We will be looking at the structural layout of poems and going deeper than simply studying the poetic devices which are used. Exemplar types of poems studied include kenning, haiku and tanka. These will give the children an opportunity to be creative whilst furthering their journey as writers.
