Year 6 have created some lovely pieces of poetry using MAAFA as their theme. First, they chose the words that they would like to be the spine of their poem. Next, they created a word bank of topic related vocabulary that began with their chosen letters. Finally, they drafted their poem, paying attention to where they could add in poetic writing features, and how the punctuation could help the poem make an impact upon the reader.
Questions you could ask your child- what style of poem have you created? Can you show me any alliteration in your poem. Point out some figurative language and explain why you’ve added it in.
