ROCKCLIFFE CE PRIMARY SCHOOL

The Lion and Albert

This term we have been looking at narrative poetry focusing on The Lion and Albert by Marriott Edgar, a humorous poem set in Blackpool and written in Lancashire dialect.  We have looked at character and setting, thought about the motivation of the characters using freeze frame and hotseating and considered what makes the poem humorous.

We wrote postcards from Albert's father, drawing on our understanding of colloquialisms.
