Friday 21st March is World Poetry Day

Do your students need a refresh on the difference between a Ballard and Sonnet?


Jump online with your class and use Writing Fun* to learn about the most common types of poems. Writing Fun’s Poetry section explains the constructs of poetry as well as providing outlines and examples of 14 common poem types including sonnet, acrostic, limerick and ode. Once your class has mastered the different types of poems, why not spend some time researching famous poets/poems and have a try at writing your own poems.

We’d love to hear how you’re celebrating World Poetry Day at your school?

*Writing fun is available in both Reading Eggs and Spellodrome.
