Blackout Poetry

We have recently been doing a unit of work on Poetry. We decided to focus on Blackout poetry and connect it with our class novel ‘Once’ by Morris Gleitzman and also our History topic of World War 2. The text that pupils used to ‘blackout’ and create their poem was from ‘Once’.

Their poems could have any link or theme with World War 2. The pupils then thought carefully about what sort of art would complement their poem and added that to their final piece as well. Some pupils even had a go at using GarageBand on the iPads to compose their own music. Here are some finished examples.
