Poetry: From a Railway Carriage by Robert Louis Stephenson
Linking with our History topic on Railways this term, we will look at this classic poem by the Scottish poet Robert Louis Stephenson which describes a thrilling journey by train and all the sights and sounds experienced by the poet. We will study the theme of the poem and identify the poetic devices used to create similar poems of our own.
Linking with our History Topic on The Railway Revolution, we shall be learning how to research the topic using note-taking techniques using information and ICT text. We will be reading and analysing report texts and finally will learn how to write our own non-chronological report based on notes from several sources including, DK Find Out: History of Trains for Kids.
