Hello! Today we are learning to (WALT):
Prepare poems to read aloud with expression.
Since the start of the year, we have really enjoyed exploring 'The Lost Spells'- the follow up to 'The Lost Words' by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris.
Robert MacFarlane has set a challenge for children to perform 'Jackdaw' from the Lost Spells and we have a special certificate to present in Celebration Worship to anyone who has a go at the challenge!
You can view the poem below. Don't forget to perform your poem with 'expression' - you may need to look up any words you don't know to help you to do this!
Think about where you perform your poem -would an outside setting add something to your performance?
You can see other children performing 'The Jackdaw' here:
