Apologies that this week’s video has been posted a few days late. This week’s poem is Bayonet Charge by Ted Hughes. Here is a copy of the poem:
This poem was used in the GCSE exam a couple of years ago, so it is less likely that this one will come up as the specified poem in the exam, but you can never be sure.

One poem that might work well as a comparison to this is the poem from last week, The Charge of the Light Brigade, as they both have people involved in war or conflict.
Here is this week’s video lesson:
Going forward, I will be aiming to post these videos on Tuesdays alongside the other home learning tasks.
