PE: With Joe Wicks
English - The City of Silence Activity 11
LO: To write a poem with a repeating pattern
To start the week we are going to write a poem with a repeating pattern. Have a look through all of the work you did last week:
Now think of a phrase that you can repeat, that includes a place and an abstract noun.
E.g: In the prison of silence; Through the mirror of despair; The dungeon of doom...
Activity Choice 1:
Using one of the combination phrases, use that line as a repeated phrase in a poem. Try to include items from the bullet pointed list at the top.
Eg: I chose 'In the prison of silence'
In the prison of silence I watch the rain trickle down the glass,
In the prison of silence I hear a lonely car pass by, wheels sloshing through a puddle;
In the prison of silence the walls oppress the warm air, which clings to the skin;
In the prison of silence there are confused cats sitting on laptops.
Write your own and make it at least 10 lines long.
Activity Choice 2
Choose a selection of at least 6 different combinations and turn each one into a verse of 4 lines. For example, write 4 'In the prison of silence' lines, then 4 'Though the mirror of despair' lines, then 4 'The dungeon of doom' lines, and so on.
Have a look at the document below, for ways you could start your verses.
