Working together to succeed

'Working together to succeed'


LO:  I can write a poem using imagery. 


Be ready to read your poem to the class at 1pm.


For today's lesson, I'd like you to put everything you've learnt over the past week or so about imagery into a poem.   I'd like you to use the thoughts you gathered on your walk, and take me along with you!  Help me imagine what you're seeing by choosing the best language you can.  Use a thesaurus to help you.


You have some imagery that you've already written from yesterday's lesson.  What you need to think about now is how you will organise your poem?  One long stanza or lots of shorter ones?  (Do you remember what a stanza is?  Look back on your work to help you remember!)  Your stanzas could all be the same length, or you could have some short and some long to create the effect you're after.  Some stanzas are just one sentence!  


In your poems, I want to see at least the following:

- two metaphors

- one simile

- one example of personification

- two 'clues' as to what you're describing 


Remember - QUALITY over QUANTITY please.  Think about EVERY word you write.  READ it out loud - does it sound 'right'?  


When you've finished, leave it for a while and then go back to it and read it through again. Does it STILL sound right?


I'm really looking forward to hearing what you've done!
