A break in a poem can be used to get the attention of the reader while a poem that continues into the next line can show a continuing thought. Understanding these poetic conventions can help students feel more confident and read poems more critically. This class will explore caesura, enjambment, and rhyme scheme and will use the poem 'Silver' by Walter de la Mare to practice. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 but is great for any poetry lover.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for students in Years 7 - 9.
