Remember, Remember, it’s National Poetry Day this week
On Thursday 02 October, it’s National Poetry Day in the UK. This week I’m busy with school visits, but even if you don’t have a poet visiting your school, you can still join in the fun – reading poems, old and new, and writing your own poems.
Click on the picture above to find a resource, titled A Time to Remember. It takes inspiration from the Schofield & Sims A Time to Speak and a Time to Listen poetry anthology, and features three separate poems on the subject of Remember, each aimed at a different Key Stage:
At the Sea-Side by Robert Louis Stevenson (Key Stage 1)
The Toll-gate House by John Drinkwater (Key Stage 2)
The Sentry by Wilfred Owen (Key Stage 3).
Meanwhile, you can find a writing workshop on epitaphs, featuring my poem, Dear Snowman, if you click here. It is just one of eight fun resources.
Enjoy reading, writing and playing with words, everyone!
