In our final Learning Journey of 2023, we have been exploring the classic Christmas poem, ‘Twas the Night before Christmas by Clement Moore. The children have discussed the unknown vocabulary in the poem, of which there is quite a lot. We then practiced reading it aloud, focusing on our fluency. The children were encouraged to develop their pace, the smoothness and phrasing of their reading and of course, the expression they used. To complete the unit, the children performed part of the verse, aloud to their classmates. We ho, ho, hope you enjoy listening to this poem as much as we enjoyed reading it.
