This pack contains a number of resources to support pupils when writing a poem using the letters of the alphabet. Each line begins with a letter of the alphabet, in a similar style to an acrostic poem. The theme of the model text is ‘Kitchen Disco’, with opportunities to explore the use of the senses to create imagery and the use of personification. This poetic style does not have to follow any rhyme or rhythmic pattern so is an excellent way for pupils to experiment with writing poetry.

The resources are based around the theme of the kitchen. When writing their own poems, pupils can list things using a different theme, such as ‘School Mayhem’, ‘A visit to the supermarket or other every day places. A selection of image cards showing different themes are included to inspire writing.
