I'm on WJEC too. We've been told to annotate the poem with all the writing skills(?) you can see, like metaphors, similes, alliteration etc. Just don't waste too much time on this.
We get given a list, one almost exactly the same as neesh_27 posted, but there's 5 points in all, and we were told to write two or three things about each point. Hope that helps Don't forget to discuss what you annotate!

I had an A* for it last year, and my biggest piece of advice is not to panic and systematically work your way through each point in the poem. Write about what it's inferring and trying to say as well as the message it's trying to get across. Hope that helps.

LOL at how this thread is three years old.

You have to look for key features. What form is the poem? Is there a rhyme scheme? Are the rhymes perfect or slant? What's the narrative style - is it dialogue or a stream of consciousness? What's the subject matter and what are the themes? Any interesting language choices? Poetic device? Metre? Symbolism? Similes/metaphors? References?
