Mrs Rendall our librarian has put up a 'poet tree' in the library to remind us to start looking in the range of poetry books that are available there. We talked about this last week.
Our WALTs for the poetry eisteddfod for Year 2 are: (Year 3's will be very similar)
- Present a poem to an audience
- Use a clear voice
- Talk about why we chose this poem - a short introduction.
- Listen attentively to the presentations
To help us have the courage to stand up in front of our class and say a poem it helps if we know it really well and have had lots of practice saying it to family at home. It is perfectly fine to use a poem from the poetry book, as we have already worked on these as a class. It is also fine to write and present your own poem.
