Example text

It stirs the emotions. ᭤ It helps the listener to appreciate how you see the world. ᭤ It creates some of its effect by the sound of the words as they are spoken. What do you see? A clear example of strong imagery is found in a poem by Thomas Hardy (1840–1928). It’s called ‘The Darkling Thrush’. You can find it easily on the Internet. The first thing to do when you read or listen to poems is to make sure you understand what the individual words mean. So if I were coming to this poem for the first time I’d want to know what coppice, spectre, dregs and desolate mean.

It’s a good game for keeping your mind nimble, giving yourself a giggle and having new ideas to write about. Any spoonerism can be fun, but ones that actually make some kind of sense are the best of all. And so ‘keys and parrots’ (instead of ‘peas and carrots’) is a better spoonerism than ‘a tup of key’ (instead of ‘a cup of tea’). Here are some well-known spoonerisms: ᭤ fighting a liar (lighting a fire) ᭤ I searched every crook and nanny (I searched every nook and cranny) ᭤ cattle ships and bruisers (battle ships and cruisers) ᭤ nosy little cook (cosy little nook) ᭤ you’ve tasted two worms (you’ve wasted two terms) ᭤ a half-warmed fish (a half-formed wish) ᭤ is bean dizzy?

But I’m talking about something different, which is a kind of giving up, a laziness in creative endeavour or a fear of ‘doing it wrong’. These tendencies must be watched for and countered wherever possible, because they will dampen the pupil’s whole thinking process. Conversely, if we can encourage and support individuality of thinking as we ask pupils to play with words and strive towards poetic freshness, such habits of thought will be transferred to all areas of their learning and then beyond school into their lives more generally.
