Poems for Teachers

Newly qualified teachers in 2018 will be welcomed with a gift that lets them know they are not alone, whatever challenges they meet.  With support from professional organisations across the Scottish education sector, a pocket-sized book of poems about teaching will be given to all teachers beginning their career – and every teacher will recognise the experiences described. Can you help? Click here to read more.

National Poetry Day

NPD 2017 was on 28 September this year with the theme of 'Freedom'.  You can still download the poster pdfs, learning resources, and listen, watch and read material about the poems we featured. Click here to see all the resources. They're great to use at any point in the school year!

Classroom Resources

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.
