Year 2 poems – The Sound Collector

Year 2 have been working on the poem ‘The Sound Collector’ by Roger McGlough. Lesson 1 we listened carefully to the poem and drew ‘doodles’ of what we imagined.

Lesson 2 we focused on performing the poem. We talked about syllables and keeping the beat.  Then we split the poem up into its different verses and gave each group a different one to learn. At the end of the lesson each group performed their verse in turn so that we had a class performance of the poem.
