PoetryYear 8

You will will be exposed to the different ways in which poets communicate their observations, ideas and feelings. You will also explore the ways that language is cleverly crafted in order to express imaginative ideas and the authors’ personal responses to the world in which they live.

How can words paint pictures?

Creative Thinking

Imagery

Have you ever asked yourself, what makes a poem a poem?In Year 8 we will make a start on an answer to that question. A poet’s personal style and how they use symbolic and figurative language will be the focus.

Courage

Risk

Reading and understanding some poetry can be challenging. Writing poetry can also feel difficult.Difficulty is not always a bad thing! Persist with poetry - it's worth it.

Good poetry writing takes time and demands a sense of playfulness and risk when it comes to using language.
