We will focus on:

– Exploring how to enjoy sharing poetry aloud.

– Building understanding of poetic devices such as imagery, alliteration and assonance and structural techniques like enjambement and caesura

– Close literary analysis, exploring how poets use language to create mood and atmosphere in their writing, discussing the poet’s possible intended purpose and how that is achieved.

– Discovering how to structure and answer different types of comprehension questions.

– Enjoying writing poetry.

The theme for this course will be The Sea and it is broadly aimed at students who are Key Stage 3 (11-14 years) and pre-GCSE. More able and keen KS2 students may also enjoy and benefit from this, or older students who would like to have a bit of a catch up.

Course members may have different confidence and ability levels so this will be gentle and creative with lots of opportunity for discussion.
