Poetry Performances In Year 2

Lesson: English

Class: Y2 - Mr Wright Year: 2019 - 2020

In our English lessons this week we have been looking at poetry, focussing in particular on poems about growing up. In today's lesson, we split into small groups and rehearsed the poem ‘Now We Are Six’ by A. A. Milne. Each group were asked to come up with appropriate actions to help them remember the words off by heart and we discussed how we should use appropriate expression when performing. The groups then took it in turns to recite the poem in front of the class and we evaluated each performance, highlighting things which we thought each group did particularly well.

Later on, we performed the poem together as a whole class and we were able to remember all of the words without using any paper, coming up with actions to help us recall each line. Look at how well we were able to learn and recite the poem!
