The Lion and Albert

The Lion and Albert by Marriott Edgar - Choral and Performance Poetry.  Pupils hear, read, and experience performance poetry, both on paper and in actual performance through a recorded monologue. They explore the contribution made by the performance element. They then write in various genres based on the poem.

Pupils respond to the experience and discuss and analyse what the performance element adds to the poetry and in what ways. They also consider dialect and accent in the poem The Lion and Albert.

Pupils identify features that might make a good performance, for example well-chosen words, powerful verbs, adjectives, adverbs and precise nouns; use of detail and sense impressions; surprising and illuminating combinations of words; repetition, alliteration, onomatopoeia, rhythm and rhyme. They select, rehearse and present some of them, looking to develop effective use of such features as volume, pace, expression and movement, and possibly adding simple music or rhythm, body percussion, etc. They evaluate and self-evaluate their performances and improve them.

The teacher models and then supports the children in writing/creating a range of texts which are linked to the theme of the poem.

The teacher models and then supports the children in writing their own poems which are then rehearsed, performed, shared, evaluated and improved. A simple digital video camera, which itself can be operated by children, provides an excellent way of recording and reviewing children's own live performances, and ICT media, such as pod casting, can provide a wider audience for such performances.

Additional creative activities can be used to extend this unit, such as using stop motion animation to retell the poem, or a narrative version; using a cartoon strip to retell the story.

The resource provides opportunities for drama, writing in role, writing in different genres, and writing and performing poetry.  It also gives pupils the opportunity to explore colloquialisms, accent and dialect.
