After hearing a kennings poem all about Kevin, the PowerPoint lesson then takes the children through a process that will enable them to write their own kennings poems.

We are sure you and your children are going to have great fun using it.

The teachers’ notes include:

  • Some background information about what kennings are and how they originated.

  • A host of follow up ideas you might want to try once the children have gone through the PowerPoint lesson.

  • The full text of the poem ‘Kennings for Kevin’ which was written and performed by the children’s poet, David Horner.
