Off by Heart

Over the Summer Holiday, we are asking you to learn a poem from the list below ‘Off By Heart’.  This is for our annual poetry recital performances. To be able to recite a poem ‘Off by Heart’ is a fantastic skill, and once learned, you enjoy performing it to others, and you will not forget it!

The list of poems were sent home on the Class Information Sheets

When we return to school in September, children will recite their poem to the rest of the class.
The best way of learning a poem is not to try and do it all at once. Little and often, line by line, is often the best approach.

Following the class performances, one pupil per class will be selected to perform their poem to Mrs Foad and the rest of the school in a special
assembly, where all performers will receive a certificate, and a trophy will be awarded for the best performance.
