    Today we will be writing an acrostic poem based on an aspect of Ancient Egypt.

    Let’s take a look at an Ancient-Egyptian-themed acrostic poem.

    As you read the poem,

    think about these

    questions…

    What do you like about the poem?

    What do you not like about the poem?

    Can you spot any poetic devices in the poem?

    Are you unsure of the meaning of any words?

    What could you use to help you?

    As we write our own Ancient Egyptian acrostic poems today, we will be focusing on alliteration.

    Are you able to find any examples of alliteration in the

    poem we have looked at?

    Can you remember what

    alliteration is?

    Alliteration is the repetition of the same or similar sounds at the beginning of words in the same

    sentence.

    Remember alliteration is

    about the sound not the letter.

    …protect and provide for the people

    Pharaohs flaunt…

    …keep farmlands fertile and fruitful

    …towering temples…

    Sphinx silently…

    Let’s think about the best way to write an acrostic.

    The first step is to choose the topic of your poem and set out the

    letters in the word on your page. E G Y P T

    Let’s think about the best way to write an acrostic.

    Next we should mind map or make notes on all the words we

    can think of to do with the chosen topic. Do this on a separate piece

    of paper.

    E G Y P T

    Let’s think about the best way to write an acrostic.

    Now we can start to

    fill in the poem.

    Each line should have at

    least three words.

    E G Y P T

    very Pharaoh is a god

    If you’re struggling to fit a line with the letter, try starting with

    an adjective.

    E G Y P T

    very Pharaoh is a god

    all obelisks loom over the city

    If you’re stuck move

    on to another line.

    You don’t have to do each line in

    order.

    Can you finish off this poem? Try thinking of some interesting adjectives and verbs to include.

    Can you include at least one example of alliteration?
