I’ve suggested that my class only learn quotes from these 4 poems (but I know some teachers think that’s a bit risky – so do what your teacher tells you to do!!) We only have 3 quotes from each for now, but will identify two more from each poem so will have 5 from each, or 20 in total by the real GCSEs. Remember my class that you must be able to identify the 3 key quotes from every poem (not just these four) if you look at a blank copy of it (Mr Johnson has put blank copies here, but you have to scroll down a bit in the document for the Conflict poems: https://englishatturton.edublogs.org/2016/08/01/year-11-poetry-exam-revision-guide/)

- Round the decay/ Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,/ The lone and level sands stretch far away.
- probably armed, possibly not. OR End of story, except not really.
- sun-stunned, sand-smothered land OR blood-shadow
- his bloody life in my bloody hands.
