Rated 3/5 from 2 ratings (Write a review)
In this final part of our performance poetry workshop films, Paul Cookson works with KS1 children using dinosaurs and lists as a starting point for a group poem.
As in the film, you can start with a list. The list could be about anything – eg, farm animals, pets, fish, birds, jungle creatures – but the example given focuses on minibeasts and creepy-crawlies.
Creating your poem
Make a list of creepy-crawlies (about 12-14 will work well for a verse).
Say these out loud in rhythm, asking the children to repeat after you:
Spi-ders, bee-tles Ants and butterflies
Add some -ing words. What are these creatures doing? There is only one rule: no words can be repeated.
Spiders climbing Beetles creeping Ants crawling Butterflies flying Say these rhythmically with the children.
