Above is the word cloud you created yesterday! It's great to see everyone's feedback.
Poets take inspiration from the world around them. In the poems we have looked as so far, the poets have used their personal memories as a theme for their work. Michael Rosen wrote about his childhood, Karl Nova wrote about the MC which influenced his work and Tony Mitton wrote about his aspirations.
Today we are going to look at two more raps by Karl Nova and start to think about the inspiration, whether it be a person, place or thing, we have all around us.
We are focusing on the poems "For You" and "The City of my Birth" by Karl Nova. Copies of the poem are in the word document below. Read each poem and then watch the poet perform them.
After you watched the poems, answer the questions on the sheet below. Sentence starters have been included in red. Please make sure you answer in full sentences, providing detailed answers to each question.
Please tell us what you thought about the poem and any people, places or things you would write about in your poems. Use the link below:
