In English we are focusing on Classic Poetry. We have been reading and highlighting examples of poetry written by the poet Mary Howitt.  We are concentrating on The Spider and the Fly as our key text. We will be reading and analysing the poem looking at the rhyming words, rhyming structure and exploring the archaic language within the poem. Can you believe that the poem was written in 1829?! We have watched an animation of the poem and have compared with the original poem. We will be completing lots of drama such as, freeze framing and hot seating main characters from the poem.
