MPT has put together an education pack to supplement the children's focus in MPT 'I WISH...'. The pack features four poems from the issue and a range of activities and discussion topics around these poems. It is designed for use in primary education and is free to download here.

The pack also includes some bonus material: Michael Rosen and Marina Boroditskaya offer their top tips for introducing schoolchildren to poetry.
