Poetry Workshop 2 - Upper KS2

A poetry workshop for upper KS2. Here is an opportunity for you to have a real poet in your classroom .

In this resource package David Horner, children’s poet in residence here at Goodeyedeers, shares with you a typical session he did when he was working in schools across the country and abroad.

A comprehensive set of notes set out in detail how David would have organised a typical visit to school. The package also includes all the resources you will need to duplicate the sessions:

  • Three animated videos where David reads out three of his poems using a number of unusual characters to help him!
  • Text of each of these poems for the children to have as they follow the readings.
  • Suggestions, in the Teachers’ Notes, as to how you might follow this first session up.
  • A PowerPoint containing a complete workshop lesson for you to do with the children to get them writing their own poetry.
  • A set of notes to accompany each of the slides that talk you through the lesson.

We hope that you and your class enjoy this resource.
