National Poetry Day is fast approaching!

20 September 2018

‹Why not discover them all in your own time:

In The Purrfect Pawse: A little book to help children pause, stretch and be grateful, Avril McDonald returns with some of the colourful, lovable characters from her Feel Brave series to help nurture young children™s physical and mental well-being through a combination of activity and poetry.

Thoughtings by Peter Worley and Andrew Day is a poetry collection with a difference.

Bob Cox's Opening Doors to Famous Poetry and Prose provides 20 units of work covering poetry and prose from our literary heritage. Each unit comes with exciting stimulus material and creative suggestions for ways in which the material can be used for outstanding learning possibilities.

Teaching Poetry in the Primary Classroom is written by a former teacher and school inspector, and popular and widely published children™s poet (Gervase Phinn), offers an accessible, practical and structured programme for the teaching of this sometimes neglected aspect of the English curriculum.

Avril McDonald's Feel Brave Series “ little stories about big feelings.
