This week of lessons went fantastically and children progressed daily in their reading skills, as well as in their expression, tone and pace of their reading. The same text is used every day, so the lower ability students get a chance to listen to it being read aloud before they try towards the end of the week.

What's different about teaching a poem is that you get to teach children about different elements such as:

  • rhythm
  • pace
  • rhyme

While also discussing the difference between a poem and a written text, structurally.

Key Skills taught

  • Vocabulary
  • Retrieval
  • Explanation
  • Inference
