As we have built up our understanding of free verse poems, today we are going to be planning our own free verse poem.


Following our topic of Antarctica we will be writing a poem about being in Antarctica. Looking at the example from yesterday, we saw that vivid description is a major part of free verse poems. Today you will be expected to complete the two following tasks.


1. Create a mind map of all the things you can see in the picture. E.g Gargantuan mountains, glistening ice etc.


2. Each verse will be 4 lines and will focus on one aspect of Antarctica. We would like you to pick 4 things you would like to write about.
