WALT: perform our own poems, ensuring that the meaning is clear to the audience. 

I would like you to practice presenting your poem aloud.  When you feel confident, please film yourself performing your work, if you are able to and willing.  You could use props if you like!

Alternatively, a clear and expressive reading is fine (rather than trying to memorise.)

Think about which words need to be emphasised and also the pace that you speak, as well as ensuring that your pronunciation is clear.

Remember to send your neat copies of your poems – and your videos if you can – to me for feedback.

Enjoy!
