Thursday 4th October is National Poetry Day. I invite you to foster a love of poetry by reading poems with your children, encouraging them to memorise poems by heart and to compose poems at home.
At 2pm on the 4th October many KS2 classrooms will be watching a live poetry lesson delivered by the BBC. Joseph Coehlo will be performing poems during the live classroom performance.
To lead up to poetry day I will select some children to perform poems in assembly on Monday 1st October, so encourage your children to get reading.
