Y4 Poetry - Identifying Devices and using them.

Consolidation lesson based around alliteration, personification, repetition and using rhetorical questions. Focus on finding and recognising the devices in poems, and students can make additions to the ideas. Exercises to practice alliteration and personification. Then go onto write a shape poem on the theme of the impact of the Wind. 

The lesson is carefully differentiated as we look at how two famous authors use these devices and how they write short, simple poetry about the impact of the wind. - Christina Rossetti and Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson.
