For the next two weeks the Robins will be focussing on poetry during literacy. Today we had a look at different poems and identified some poetic features including rhyming words and repetition.

Miss Sloman shared her favourite poem with us called ‘The Lion and Albert’ which is about ‘a famous seaside place called Blackpool, that’s noted for fresh air and fun’. We watched a performance of the poem on YouTube.

This is one of the poems we read:


We thought about the poem and recognised that it was about how you would feel if your best friend moved away.

Some of us read the poem to the class and changed the name Hanna to our best friends name.

Watch this space as we will be creating our own poetry to write and perform.

  1. What an interesting poem – did you enjoy this one? I am using one of my favourite poems with Kestrels at the moment – I wonder if you will like it too?

  2. I wonder if you can get some tips from Yr 2 who have also been reading their poems out loud to each other?
