Week 7 – Poetry

In this unit we will look at a famous British poet called John Lyons. We will be looking at his poem ‘Carnival Jumbie’ and ‘Carnival dance’ and using them to inspire our own Carnival poem for our final piece of writing.

This is the second part of the unit but as we only have one week before we all come back to school we didn’t want to miss out on looking at some poetry to finish off our English Home Learning.

Lesson 3 – To generate and develop vocabulary for our own poem

In this lesson, we will recap the tone and themes of John Lyons' poems 'Carnival Jumbie' and 'Carnival Dance Lesson'. We will then create senses word maps to describe what we might see and hear at a carnival to use in our own poems.


Key points and activities from the video:

● Write down new vocabulary and either a definition or use it correctly in a sentence that you may be able to use in your own poem about Carnival tomorrow.

● Create a senses word map that contains words that you would like to use in your poem tomorrow.

● Record any sentences you have come up with or magpie from the lesson to use in your own poem tomorrow.
