Blackout Poetry in Year 6

Posted by Mrs Little on 08/02/21 at 01:03 PM

In English we are exploring the wordless picture book ‘The Arrival’ by Shaun Tan. Already, the children are using their inference skills and imaginations to predict what is happening in the story and what will happen next.

As part of the unit we explored an image called ‘Shadow’ from the text. The children had to think about what they thought this strange shape was and create a blackout poem if they could. We were really impressed by how many children tried to create a blackout poem; some did it by hand, others listed their chosen words and others created the effect using a computer. They were well thought through and interesting to read. We hope you enjoy looking at them too.
