Did you say it’s made of waves? Light by Margaret Tait
The theme for National Poetry Day 2015 is ‘Light’. There are resources for schools on the Scottish Poetry Library website. They have produced poem cards, posters and learning resources to support use of the poems in schools. There is also biographical information about the poets.
Children and young people love poems and poetry helps to improve literacy. Don’t forget to have a look at the excellent Scotshoose website which includes poems in Scots.
The Scottish Poetry Library are keen to hear how schools across Scotland celebrate National Poetry Day and use the resources. They’re also very happy to feature schools’ plans and photos on their website to help promote schools’ projects. If you have something to share, please email Learning Manager Georgi Gill (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Learning Resource Service has a broad range of resources to support poetry in your classroom.
