Performing Poetry

We have recently begun studying poetry. We have looked at rhyme, rhythm, alliteration, similes, metaphors and personification so far, with a big focus on the images that the poets try to create. As part of our study we have been learning poems by heart and have also been looking at how we could add sounds and (in future) pictures to help to show poetic imagery.
These poems were studied over two days for their imagery and use of different features, then we decided to add sounds. This is part of an ICT project as we are going to use Vye personal computers to create our own performance poetry very soon.
The poems that we have recorded are:
Last Night I saw the City Breathing by Andrew Fusek Peters.

The Magic Box by Kit Wright.

The Snow Monster by John Foster

Being Told Off by Fiona Tomlinson.

The Sea is a Hungry Dog by James Reeves
