Hocus Pocus: A Poetry Pack Whole School Licence
Into the cauldron you must go,
To make my spell and help it grow...
This pack encourages your learners to write and record a spell poem disguised as a witch or Sorcerer. Using popular examples from Snow White, Sword in the Stone and pushing more able learners with an example from Macbeth, this text-centric approach will support learners develop key reading and writing skills.
This pack is aimed at Lower Key Stage 2
This pack includes:
- Comprehension lessons that integrate and develop core reading skills at Word, Sentence and Text Level.
- Writing lessons that encourage collaborative learning and independent creative writing that embeds grammar in a meaningful way and helps learners understand what it mean to be a real writer, one who writes for an authentic purpose and with a particular audience in mind.
- Performance lessons that develop reading fluency and a deeper understanding of their own work and that of others, as well as help improve personal social skills and confidence.
By the end of each Unit of Work, teachers will have written and video evidence of each of their learner's work, work that can be shared with a wider audience and be assessed for moderation and inform future planning.
