Writing and Talking Riddles
This resource is aimed primarily at Years 3 and 4.

In the short video 'Colour Riddles', children's poet, David Horner, talks you through some ideas for getting the children to write colour riddle poems and shape riddle poems.

In the short video 'Talking Riddles' David reads out three riddle poems of his own. This animated film would make a great lesson starter.

The Teachers' Notes give you some extra ideas for exploring more riddle poetry and how they might be written.
