National Poetry Day for Teachers 2016
National Poetry Day will be celebrated across the UK on Thursday 6 October 2016.
The theme is MESSAGES. Messages by text, by letter, by phone, by handmade card; funny messages, sinister messages, unspoken messages, messages to decode. What message will you be sending this October?
From mid-August, you'll be able to see resources to help you work with each poem, including poster versions of each poem to download, and material on each poet.
Broadly speaking, four poems and resources are directed at primary pupils or are just easier to read, while the remaining four poems and resources are more suited to secondary pupils and more able readers. However, depending on the learning level of different pupils you may want to use them differently - be creative and find the best matches for your readers!
