Analysing a poem
Analysing: A poem for libraries by Joshua Siegal

On Thursday, we celebrated National Poetry Day. First, the children watched a special video recorded by Joshua Seigal for our school. He spoke to the children about what he enjoys about being a poet and performed  a selection of poems from his four published books. We then analysed our focus class poem: A poem for libraries by Joshua Seigal identifying poetic devices e.g. alliteration and considering how the reader felt. The children then wrote their own poems inspired by the model poem written by Joshua Seigal.
