Now let's switch our ENGLISH brains on!


Welcome to the first home learning English lesson of the week Skylarks! During our English lesson today, we will be moving onto something new today... EGYPRIAN POETRY! Below is an explanation of the task I would like you to complete.


For this lesson you will need to have a pencil and some paper.  

Today's Task


Today we are going to concentrate on finding the features of a poem! 


Below is a selection of 4 different Egyptian poems. Have a read of each of them and choose which one is your favourite.


I have also added a mat below which tells you what the main features of a poem are. For today's task I would like you to use this mat to find the features in one of the 4 poems I have provided. smiley


Write down examples of all the features you can find...


  • For example – Poem Name = The Nile River
  • Number of verses - 2
  • I can see commas at the end of most lines and full stops at the end of some.


Have a go... and don't forget to email be what you get up to!smiley
