Due: Friday 6th November
We’re going to analyse, and then write a Kenning poem – print these out at home or at school, and we’ll get these on our new Poetry display in class.https://www.youngwriters.co.uk/types-kennings
First: re-read our local Totnesian (nationally famous!) Matt Harvey’s poem, Slug. (Attached) Slug – Matt Harvey
Level 3 Target: Pick out 3 Kennings. Suggest how the poet feels about slugs. Respond in SEA paragraphs.
Level 4-5 Target: Pick our 2 Kennings. Comment on how punctuation and structure contributes to the reading of this poem? Can you support your answer with a specific example?
Level 6 Target: Do you spot any similarities in style with another of Matt Harvey’s Two Lovely Black Eyes? Make three comparisons. (Attached) Two Lovely Black Eyes
Then: Create your own Kenning poem.
