Week One – What is a poem?      

Finding different ways to begin writing poetry as well as establishing an understanding of what poetry is. Does it have to rhyme? does it have to follow rules? How are we using punctuation? and more than anything, is it a poem just because I say it is?

Week Two – Rhyme and Rhythm

For writing intended to be read out loud both of these tools have an incredible power. We will explore ways of using both to their greatest effect.

Week Three – Simile and Metaphor

How do we look at something and see something else? We will explore the depth of metaphoric writing and how it can add power to our poetry.

Week Four – Personification

Bringing objects to life and bringing life to objects. Developing our writing using this incredible tool.

Week Five – Forms and Rules

We’ll look at several different poetic forms and develop our understanding of how to create them.

Week Six – Using everything we’ve learned to set our own rules

We will develop completely new and original poetic forms and create poems using all the skills and tools we have learned in previous weeks.
