L.O. To research around the poem to help me understand

Complete the vocabulary section below.

Read the poem, preferably with an adult, maybe more than once (note - the sections underlined are for tomorrow's work).

If you are able, find out a bit about Max Boyce, Swansea and the Mumbles, Alun Wyn [Jones] and work out what they have in common (maybe the adult with you will know the answers if you haven’t got internet access).


Write a paragraph explaining what the poem is about and Mr Boyce’s different ideas about the situation (for instance, does he think it is all bad?).

Challenge: To explain, particularly the title of the poem ‘Just the tide went out’. It is used a few times as a kind of chorus, reading those bits might help you.
