The Listeners by Walter de la Mare

Poetry Week

During our English session, this week, we will be looking at a piece of classic poetry. As part of our learning, we would like the children to learn this poem by heart. We will do this using a ‘Talk for Writing’ strategy where pictures and actions are used to support the children in learning the words.

To support this further, please find below a copy of the picture prompt sheet and a copy of our poem, ‘The Listeners’ by Walter de la Mere, for you all to practise at home - have fun. 🤩
