Poetry Parent Guide: The Sea




This study pack is designed to support students aged approximately 11-16 who are considering GCSE English in the future and looking to develop their close text analysis skills and understanding of poetry. It is not a GCSE scheme but designed to introduce key skills needed for this. The 30 page scheme is divided into five parts, each section centred around a different nautical poem by a range of poets. This pack gently guides you, the parent, as you work with your child to help them develop key skills such as:

  • Understanding of poetic devices, structure and form
  • Awareness of purpose and intention
  • Annotation
  • Interpreting texts
  • Interpreting comprehension and analysis questions
  • How to structure and answer a range of question styles
  • Writing poetry

Please note that this is a resource pack designed for parents and students will need support as they work through this project.
