It’s Bonfire Night
Add to My Folder
This poster and the accompanying activity sheet text provide a topical pair of poems for Bonfire Night. Children can compare the way poet Kevin McCann creates a strong image in ‘It’s Bonfire Night’ with the quite different techniques used by Wes Magee in his shape poem, ‘Giant Rocket’.
Shared teaching and learning
- Share experiences of Bonfire Night celebrations. What did the children hear, see or smell? Can they name and describe any individual fireworks? Make a list of these together.
- Compare the way the two poems are set out. Discuss shape poems that the children have read before. How did the poets create the shapes?
