WALT: Identify the features of a poem.


Success Criteria

I can read a poem carefully.

I can reflect on my own personal opinion of the poem.

I can identify key features within the poem. 


Today, I would like you to go through the PowerPoint below and read our model text 'The Tropics' by Joshua Seigal. Read it a couple of times to get a real feel of the flow of the poem. You could even perform the poem to someone in your family. Once you have read the poem a few times, see if you can spot some key features - rhyming words, stanzas, repeated lines... You then need to either print off the poem so that you can highlight/underline some key features and create a key OR if you can't print then you can record the key features you find on a separate piece of paper.


Have a great day!
