  • Introduction

    The idea of this lesson plan is to inspire pupils to create their own character and learn how to write a narrative poem about them. Hand out a copy of the planning sheet / entry form to each pupil. Explain that today they will be creating a monster character and work towards writing a poem about it (slide 1).

    Main Teaching Activities

    Activity name Slide reference Activity details

    Creating a monster(10 minutes)

    2-4

    Ask pupils for adjectives and write these on the board. Pupils need to select 3 of these or 3 of their own and write these in the relevant section on the pupil planning sheet. Ask pupils to draw their monster in the space provided. Pupils need to name their monster too.

    What is a narrative poem(15 minutes)

    5-8

    Explain to pupils that a narrative poem tells a story, so has a beginning, middle and end, just like a story plot and that they will be writing a narrative poem about the monster they have created. This could be about a day out they have had together or how the monster saved the world etc. You can show them examples of narrative poems, such as The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes and The Listeners by Walter de la Mare. These poems use similes, alliteration, rhythm and rhyme to create the mood and tone for the narrative poem. Explain these poetic techniques to pupils if they are unfamiliar to them.

    Plot Planning(10 minutes) 9-10

    Ask pupils to think about the adventures their monster character can go on. Ask pupils questions, such as where is your monster from? Does it have friends? Is it good or bad? What would you do on a day out with your monster? Where would you go? Ask them to use their senses when thinking about their monster adventure and ask them to write down their ideas on the planning form, including their ideas on what theyd see / hear / feel / smell / taste. Show the class example monster poems (see reverse).

    Composing a Poem(15 minutes)

    11

    Now pupils have created a character and planned their narrative poem, it is time for them to write their poem. Ask them to include at least one of the poetic techniques used in the examples. Their final poem can be written directly onto the Monster Poetry entry form.
