Teach the world's best poetry
Poetry is best enjoyed and taught by hearing it out loud and now that so many children are learning from home, we’ve brought together some resources to help you inspire your class about the importance of poetry and the fun to be had in exploring it.
We gathered resources here to help you teach poetry. There are activities for all key stages, built around Poetry Archive recordings and offering lively, engaging ways of working with poetry.
We've also included 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. To inspire you, we've put together a few resources with suggestions that can be used with any poem in the website.
