This lesson plan explores Lucy Thynne’s ‘the parents anniversary’, a winning poem from the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2017. The activities can be used in a single session, or over a series of sessions.
Memories collected over time build together the rich picture of our uniquely different lives. The activities stimulated by reading Lucy’s poem should inspire students to use their own experiences as a rich source for prompting poetry writing.
