Poetry Please help!!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Danielle1988, Jul 13, 2011.

  1. Hi, I am doing poetry with yr 5 and 6 and was wondering whether anyone could offer me some advice.
    I am looking at classic poetry and I have got some good ideas for this and one of the links is to compare classic and contemporary poetry.
    Does anyone have any good contemporary poems to use? And has anyone comapred these to classic poems before?
    Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated :)

    Are you looking for poems on a particular theme?
    What classic poems do you want to compare them to?
  3. No not really. I was looking at some classic poems linked to animals.. I have looked at The Owl and the Pussycat, Donkey
    I have just purchased a poetry book for children which ocntains classics

    Most of the poets I pointed you to are alive today - I assumed you meant modern poets?
    Obviously Browning in the childrens archive isn't, but if you click on the name of the poet it will take you to a bio page which has their dates.
  7. Great, thanks I will look through them in depth now :)
