Does anyone know of a good performance poem for year 1 to do?

  1. Hi there. I'm hoping someone can help! I'm an NQT with a year 1 class and we have to do a 5 minute slot as part of a school summer show next month. I was thinking of some performance poetry or even a rap! Has anyone done anything like this with year 1 or am I being a bit too adventurous?!
     
  2. Would one of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes be too much/too scary for them? You could then have them either recite it or act it out. Cinderella is a bit gruesome but very funny.

    I've used these before as a way into the topic and the kids LOVE them. Really helps them to understand the idea of what 'performing' a poem is all about.
