Introduction to Poetry

Today we are starting a new writing unit; poetry! We are going to start our new unit, like we always do, with a cold task. Remember, a cold task is when you write something independently. You will find a PowerPoint below that reminds you of some features of poetry  for you to look at before you write your poem. Look through the PowerPoint before you write your poem. Your poem is going to be about our new topic, Rainforests!


Please submit your poem to our class email -
