Resources on poetry by the poets themselves

Year 5

Within the four sections special attention will be paid to the use in poetry of the following parts of speech, and to reading poetry aloud: verbs – active and passive, nouns – abstract and concrete, adjectives and adverbs, rhythm and rhyme. Year 5 Teachers might find useful what’s on offer in the Year 6 section: an A-Z of poetry terms, (alliteration, simile, assonance etc, explained and illustrated).
