Our blog for teachers helps you hit the new half term prepared. We've got a great new National 5 creative writing resource - Poetry of Crisis. (That's the name of the resource not our feelings about Nat 5.) Plus, new 10/10 lists to inspire and amuse and On your marks activities every week to get your lessons off to a flying start.
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.
