In this lesson you will be learning about the poet Benjamin Zephaniah and the historical context behind his poem ‘The British’. We are not actually reading the poem in this lesson.
Using what you have learned in the lesson, explain what you think will be in the poem.
Hot /Extra Hot
Write a short poem called ‘The British’. You are writing this without seeing Zephaniah’s poem.
Here is mine:
The was a young girl from Britain
And with queueing she was smitten
She loved nothing more
Than being a bore
And standing in a queue for her kitten
I like nonsense poems which is why a I chose a limerick.
This is the last lesson in the art block.
Using all the skills and techniques you have practiced, we would like you to create a large outdoor pattern/dragon/rune drawing using scavenged natural items. At school, we will be using the nature trail to find things.
Break sticks to use as outlines.
Different coloured leaves make an excellent way of putting the colour in your patterns.
When you have created your art work take a picture and upload to Teams.
