KS2 English lesson plan – Write spooky sound poems inspired by Neil Gaiman

Key Stage

KS2

Age

Years 3-6

Subjects

Form an investigative agency as a class and use your findings to write spooky sound poems…

Getting children to write great poetry can sometimes be a bit hit and miss, but if they are given a clear framework and a fun hook, it can be a really rewarding experience.

This lesson, great for National Poetry Day, shows how a well-known poem can be combined with a fantastic picture book to offer children a language rich stimulus that will enable them to write their own successful piece of poetry.

Exploring the language features of both texts in depth before writing will ensure a high-quality, imaginative outcome for students.
