Over the last few days you’ve practiced writing three different types of poem: an acrostic poem, an “I am” poem and a rhyming couplets poem. For today’s lesson, your task is to make your favourite poem from this week stand out. Can you: Perform it aloud? Add beatboxing/actions? Audio record it? Draw pictures/posters? Make a video?

Listen to our poet of the week, Kurly, rapping his performance of classic children’s book, Dr Seuss’s Cat In The Hat – you could give this style a try!
