Synopsis

Understanding English: Poetry by Carol Matchett

Understanding English is a series of topic-based study books for children in Key Stage 2, providing rigorous practice of key subject areas. Each topic contains a concise summary of the information required by the National Curriculum, making the series ideal for use as preparation for the Key Stage 2 tests. Each book is a stand-alone resource, so children can either work through them in order or focus on individual aspects of the subject. Together, the eight books support the whole of the Key Stage 2 English curriculum, providing a solid foundation for success in English. Poetry meets the National Curriculum requirements for Key Stage 2 English, and covers the following areas: learning poetry by heart, performing poetry, writing poetry, reading poetry aloud, similes, metaphors, poetic language, personification, haiku, free verse, nonsense poetry and shape poems. This book looks closely at the features that make poetry so special, such as rhyme, rhythm, sound effects and imagery. Key features of Understanding English include: an 'Explanation' to introduce each topic; activities to consolidate and revise knowledge and skills; thought-provoking facts to foster a love of learning beyond the National Curriculum; 'Now you try' activities to develop children's understanding of English outside the classroom.
