Poetry and talking and listening

Last week you had the opportunity to read some spring poems with very different styles and think about them using the questions. 


We had also suggested that you could perform one of the poems, thinking about how you can use your voice.


This week, watch the videos and think about how voice and body language are used when the poems are being read. Then, complete the 3 activities after, discussing the questions with an adult.


The main poem is 'Please Mrs Butler' by Allan Ahlberg, who has written many poems and books with his wife, such as 'The Jolly Postman' and 'Funnybones'. There is another poem by him to watch as well.
