World War Two poems, shape poems etc

A selection of teacher recommended poems including shape, acrostic, alphabet and postard poems on the topic giving ideas to link poetry and emotion to the subject, and to draw out figurative language from the children. I used these in a poetry workshop with year 5 children, so have also included a link to the resulting poems that they were inspired to write. This followed a visit to Murton Park (recommended) which the children were also able to draw upon, and I have also included a link to a good research site.

    Thank you for this. I'm going to use both your poems and the children's poems to hopefully inspire my year 3/4 class. It's great to find topic poems set at the right level for my children.
