Performance Poetry

Year 2 have been learning about poetry in our English lessons and last week we were learning about the poem- 'At the Zoo' by William Makepeace Thackery. Year 2 worked in pairs to learn the words of the poem and create suitable actions for each line. Each pair then performed the poem to the class, remembering to include expression and clear speech. All of the children performed confidently and enthusiastically to the whole class, which can be a very daunting experience! What wonderful performances Year 2, well done!
