Exploring Poetry - Year 3 and Year 4 Unit Plan

Teach Starter Publishing
10 x lessons | Suitable for years: 3 - 4

This English unit addresses common poetic devices such as sound play, word play and imagery and explores how these may be applied to narrative poetry.

It consists of 10 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.

An independent writing task, which may couple as an assessment task, is included in the unit. The number of lessons required to complete this task may vary from class to class.

Teachers are also encouraged to collect samples of students’ work throughout the unit to reflect their learning journey.

      Hey Lilly, thank you for your comment. PDF templates and activities are great for laptop and device learning, as they can be used on digital platforms such as Onenote. Software such as Onenote can allow students to use device pens, or use typing options to interact with these files.
