Poetry for Pleasure – staff training

Training and advice Primary

Our new professional development session for teachers in primary schools gives staff an opportunity to have fun with poetry, to experiment with new ideas and maybe to have a go at trying something different. Our one hour session will be run at a staff meeting for teachers of all Key Stages and will hopefully be a refreshing look at ways of using short, quick poetry activities in the classroom which can be differentiated for all ages and abilities of pupils.

The session will be fun and interactive, giving you a chance to have a go yourselves at some of the activities, finishing with a moment to reflect on the session and to plan a new activity for your class.

1 poetry for pleasure workshop is 1 hour – we’ll also provide you with a digital handout and ideas for lessons plans and a small collection of poetry books to borrow until the end of term.
You can choose this as one of your professional development modules as part of your subscription or buy as a one off session from our pay-as-you-go menu.
