Year 5 The Sun in Me
Through reading, comparing and exploring the vocabulary in a range of poems on the theme of countryside and nature, pupils appreciate the details in the natural world. They investigate literal descriptions and personification, using these techniques to create their compositions.
Outcome: A song for a country dweller is the final outcome which follows a clear structure.
