National Poetry Day 2019

19 September 2019 Share

Thursday 3rd October 2019

Thursday 3 October is National Poetry Day, and the theme for this year is ‘truth’. The National Literacy Trust and National Poetry Day team have some brilliant free resources to help schools celebrate. Along with professional poet Simon Mole there is also a simple lesson plan to help pupils write a narrative poem about a true story. Plus, parents can find poetry book suggestions, fun poetry activities for kids and more over on Words for Life.

More thoughts from the SLA on poetry to follow.
