Blackout poetry

Lesson: English

Class: Mr Tyson - Class 5 Year: 2020 - 2021

This week we've began to work from a poetry book called 'The lost words'.

On Wednesday, the children worked in table groups to reduce down the preface of the book to create a poem. This technique was referred to as 'blackout poetry'. 

The children worked really well together before writing their group poem up individually.
