I am about to have an observation as an NQT in a year 1 class that I don't know and I am wondering what will make a good impact on both the children and the teachers observing me. It has to be a poetry lesson and the children are at the begining of the topic. Is the royal wedding still relevent? If so what other ideas do you have appart from acrostic poems which I don't think are suitable for year1? I was thinking to start with a variaty of poems on the walls, read them one by one and discuss a little then ask the children which one was their favourite.Is this to much to cover in 45 min?appart from familiarising with a range of poems what other lesson objectives can I have. Please help, my experience with poetry is not to vast.
