Year 4 Sp1: The Roman Centurion’s Song – Pathways to Poetry


This new and exciting poetry unit is the first in a set of 3 released this year (if purchased as part of Pathways to Write this set aligns with spring 1 core unit). All aspects of poetry from the NC in reading, spoken language and writing composition will be covered across the full set. Summer 1 and Autumn 1 poetry units will be released in March and July 2021 respectively.

The Roman Centurion’s Song

Pupils write, illustrate and present 5-line ‘cinquain’ poems about life as a Roman Soldier. They find language features in the poem by Kipling and analyse model cinquains, reciting in groups and developing their ideas through letter writing and list poems.

You will receive an email with a link to download the planning and resources booklet.
