Engaging Children in World Poetry - Resources for Primary School Teachers

18th September 2015


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.
