This lesson explores Charles Causley’s poem “Who” and the development of the speaker and character. Pupils track how their understanding of the characters in the poem changed as the poem develops and then review  the poem to identify examples of foreshadowing. Pupils consider the value of re-reading a poem or text multiple times. This LTE lesson develops Frames of Reference seeing a text through different lenses.
