Inspired by ‘Overhead on a Saltmarsh’

In Y4 we have been looking at using dialogue in poetry. To help us with this, we looked at a poem based on mythical creatures ‘Overheard on a Saltmarsh’. The children used this poem to inspire their own. They looked at the features of the poem: the rhythm, the repeating phrases, and ensured that their poem included these features too!

The children have enjoyed performing their poems in front of the class and have also used peer feedback in the editing process to improve their poems.
