Poets in Y6

In Year 6 this week we have been studying ‘The Raven’ by Edger Allen Po. The children studied the poem, and explored its meaning. In our last lesson of the unit we explored writing another stanza of the poem. Here are some of the wonderful pieces that were written.

The Raven hesitated no longer, it spread its wings and seemed to ponder,
Over my body which was lain over a volume of forgotten lore.
I was no longer napping, but I still heard a tapping, for someone was rapping at my chamber door,
“Hello?” someone said as they opened the door. It was my dearest Lenore,
And she said nothing more.

The Raven hesitated no longer, it spread its wings and seemed to ponder,
Over a man, lain lifeless on the floor,
While Lenore came tapping at his chamber door,
She said, “Why is he laying on his chamber floor?”
As she kneeled on the floor, and began to implore,
“He is dead and nothing more!”

The Raven hesitated no longer, it spread its wings and seemed to ponder,
Over the innocent man slumped by the chamber door.
“It is done,” the Raven stuttered as it fluttered by the shutter,
As it flew over the books of forgotten lore, thinking it was a bore.
The job is done and nothing more

I have been amazed by the engagement by Year 6 with this tricky and beautiful poem. And the poetry outcomes were wonderful. Well done, Year 6.
