This event was the culmination of a two week unit studying how expression, tone, movement and arrangement can be used to captivate the audience.
The unit began with an entry point where students from Y6 presented some inspiring performances of poems they had memorised. The Y5’s then analysed the language used in different poems, paying particular attention to rhythm, rhyme and repetition. They then applied this knowledge to creating poems of their own and performing them in groups. Key to a successful performance was memorizing the poem, cooperating as a group and adapting if necessary. The process was brought full-circle when some of the inspirational Y6 poets returned as audience members for the final performance.
