Teach the world's best poetry to your class
We think it’s easier to teach and enjoy poetry by hearing it out loud so we’ve brought together some resources to help you show your class the importance of poetry.
Here you'll find out some information and resources to aid in the teaching of poetry. We've put together resources and activities for all key stages, built around Poetry Archive recordings and offering lively, engaging ways of working with poetry.
More than that, we have also gathered together some links to some of our favourite organisations who also provide support for teaching poetry so you should find resources to answer all your questions.
Getting started with the poetry archive
The Children's Poetry Archive can be a fantastic place to support teaching poetry in your class. To inspire you, we've put together a few resources with suggestions that can be used with any poem in the website.
