Why poetry?

Poetry is a fantastic tool for developing a range of literacy skills. Not only is poetry fun to learn, act out and perform, it is great for developing new vocabulary, developing a sense of rhyme and rhythm, encouraging creativity, developing fluency in reading and ultimately a love of words.

Each day, we will provide a new poem for you to share with your child. A range of possible activities linked to the poem will also be provided to help you enjoy and engage with the poem together.
