East Acton Primary School "Growing Together"


Using the poems Please Mrs Butler and Excuses by Allan Ahlberg, you will practise summarising. You will also give your opinion, using the text as evidence to support you. Finally, you will get creative and try writing another verse for one of the poems.


This lesson includes:

  • two videos of Strictly Come Dancing's Oti Mabuse reading poems by Allan Ahlberg
  • three activities.
