As part of National Poetry Week we have been focusing in Year 2 on performance poetry. We are all gaining in confidence when it comes to our own writing and literacy skills, but poetry also requires a powerful live projection.
Working in small groups, we were all given some poetry with a particular theme. We encouraged the children to think about the messages within their pieces of work’ and then how this could be best represented and put across through our delivery.
Each group then performed to the rest of the class. Feedback was provided, and we encouraged one another to be confident in our performance skills. The next task will be to write our own poetry and then put our performance skills to the test.
You can watch a selection of our pupils performing their poetry in the video below.
