What Makes a Good Poem?

This term, we are exploring poetry in English, but what makes a good poem? Yesterday, we looked at a wide range of poems, from limericks to acrostics, which all follow their own set of rules.

As a class, Onyx decided that a good poem includes:

  • A fun title
  • Rhymes
  • A theme
  • Interesting new vocabulary
  • A rhythm
  • Paragraphs/stanzas

As well as exploring different poems, we’ve been keeping a keen eye out for interesting vocabulary and using a dictionary to find the definitions. Our Working Wall is filled to the brim with exciting words – Comment below your favourite words that you have discovered this week!
