Shakespeare Personification Poetry
Writing poetry inspired by Shakespeare’s plays is a great way to cement understanding and celebrate learning, particularly around specific scenes. Once pupils begin to think themselves part of the scenery, their imaginations seem to more easily ‘ fill in’ the space around them, taking in not just the physical space but the atmosphere and mood in the room.

Supporting children in thinking about rhymes, there are obvious links between Animal Rhymes and phonics teaching. The activity can lead to wonderful poetry - and also develops strategic thinking!
