Performance Poetry

For homework during the half term holiday we are asking the children to learn a poem of their choice off by heart. The children will be reciting their poems in class on Monday 19th April. The best way of learning a poem is not to try and do it all at once. Little and often, line by line, is often the best approach.

The children need to be able to;

  • Use a clear voice
  • Make sure they can be heard
  • Use feeling and expression
  • Use movement and gestures
  • Consider pace
  • Suit the one of their voice to the meaning of the words
  • Follow a rhythm if needed to
  • Use different voice for different characters
  • Speak confidently
  • Make eye-contact with the audience


A book review – due Monday 19th April

It is good to be able to discuss stories and books with other people and to share views and ideas on them. Your homework this Easter break will be to write a book review for a book you have read recently. Use the template to help you organise your review.


Group A: January, February, August, improve, parents, mothers, fathers, wonderful, none, nothing

Group B: January, February, March, April, May, June

Please ensure you practise the spellings relevant to your group and write them in a range of sentences. You will be tested on Friday 23rd April.

Have a lovely Easter break and please stay safe.

From all the staff in Year 2
