Back to school! Have you sharpened the pencils and re-organised your classroom? We've been busy all summer posting National Poetry Day resources to help you get ready for 2nd October.

Look in our library of resources to find just the right thing to help meet your poetry classroom needs. From Early Years to senior students, we should have something to help with reading and writing and enjoying poetry in a range of ways, across the curriculum.
Poetry competitions can be the ideal way to bring poetry into the classroom. Many offer helpful guidance for teachers, and the prospect of prizes, publication and a real audience can prove highly motivating for pupils. Find out more about competitions for all ages and throughout the year.
