Acrostic Poetry - Year 6 / Year 7 

This lesson teaches children about acrostic poetry in a fun and engaging way. First, it provides three examples of acrostics and explains what the 'rules' of acrostics are. It then provides a task that requires children to explore the examples and discuss the poems regarding layout, language and poetic devices. The second half of the lesson explains how to write an acrostic. Pupils are given a scaffolded approach and another example to help them construct a class and then individual acrostics.

The resource is differentiated using 'Gold', 'Silver' and 'Bronze' activities to help all children achieve.
