Year 11 GCSE Scholars study of ‘Valentine’ by Carol Ann Duffy

On Valentine’s day Mrs Spruels’ Year 11 English students studied ‘Valentine’ by Carol Ann Duffy.  On the surface this poem is about the giving of an unusual present for Valentine’s Day. It is however an exploration of love and the nature of a relationship between two people. Having explored this example students went on to write their own metaphor poems for love.‘The Underground is like a relationship’ is an example piece which really stood out!
