Pupils can now write their own sense poem. Help them to choose their subject and allow them to refer to the senses you wrote on the board in the introduction. You may want to give each pupil a copy of the examples on the reverse of this lesson plan.

Examining great poetry leads to both a greater appreciation for poetry and, if encouraged appropriately, a desire to create original poetry. In this lesson, students share their personal definition of poetry and challenge and revise that definition as they read poems from selected authors. In addition to reading poetry, students listen to poems to examine how the sounds of language are used to create meaning and mood. Students then write their own nonsense poem using common poetic devices, such as alliteration, assonance, and consonance. Finally, students write a descriptive poem, share their poem with the class, and write a reflection of their experience writing their own poems.
I have put together a page of winning children’s poems by Fitzwilliam Primary School on the topic of Victorian child miners. They include lots of figurative language such as alliteration, personification, similes and metaphors, and different poem forms such as acrostics, list poems and senses poems. We perceive poetry as both art and data. Before entering the field we were conscious of the way in which (as reflected in the debates above) poetry is often placed on a pedestal (LEGGO, 2008, p.170)—portrayed as particularly nuanced and as requiring a sophisticated and specific knowledge, vocabulary and intellect to write well. We realised that as a result some participants would struggle with the idea of writing a free verse poem in a short space of time. We communicated to students that we were not looking for perfectly crafted "works of art" and that we do not necessarily see poetry as highbrow or complex; anyone can write it as it is "earthy [and] rooted in everyday experience" (ibid.). Nevertheless, to encourage the students we offered the option of either writing a free style poem or utilising a formal poetry structure. Acrostic poems, where the first letter of each line spells out a word, was one structure provided. Students were helped to begin their poem by using the letters H.O.P.E. The second formal structure provided to students was a "sense poem" where students constructed their poem by completing the phrases: Hope tastes like ... Hope sounds like ..., Hope smells like ..., Hope looks like ..., Hope makes me feel ... each on a separate line. The majority of participants who completed this activity chose to utilise a formal structure. Ten students wrote a free verse poem.
