Performance Poetry

The Moon - Robert Louis Stevenson

Still image for this video

Year 3 performed the poem 'The Moon' by Robert Louis Stevenson. After identifying the key features of the poem, we considered how we could use key oracy skills to perform it. We listened carefully to each performance and offered peer feedback on each skill. In this video, you can see how the group demonstrate a smoothness in their voice whilst also projecting their voice to emphasise key aspects of the poem. In addition, they maintain eye contact with the listener and used hand gestures to communicate the key themes in the poem. By stepping forward at the beginning of each stanza, they mimicked the organisation of the poem.
