To finalise their project on the First World War, Year 4&5 created poems using the ‘blackout’ technique. This is where they took an original poem or text extract which was written about the First World War and then selected key words that they wanted to keep. The children then ‘blacked out’ the rest of the original poem with an image of poppies, No Man’s Land or darkness in order to leave their selected words (which formed a new poem). The results were very effective.
