Performance Poetry


This half term, we have been reading Ted Hughes’s “The Iron Man” as a stimulus for our own writing. We have also looked at Brenda Williams’s “The Coming of the Iron Man”, a poem based upon the same story. Year Four have taken part in some performance poetry. We looked at how expression and intonation can make poetry reciting more interesting and used actions to explore another way in which the poem can be delivered.
