Poetry Wonderland is here to inspire your pupils aged 6-11 to get writing!

Let pupils explore poem themes in a fun and exciting way before writing their own original poem. Our optional lesson plan gets pupils out of their seats and lets creativity soar...

The theme is open, so let pupils decide what they’d like to write about; tailor Poetry Wonderland to your latest topic, a book or choose from the suggestions we’ve provided in the pupils’ colourful worksheets.

In Poetry Wonderland anything is possible, where will your pupils’ imaginations take them...?

Writing Tips

Tip #1

Creating original ideas might seem daunting for some kids, but it’s about encouraging them to think outside the box and just have fun with their ideas.

Here is a cool video from Mark Grist, who is a poet and an Education Consultant. He created this fun activity for us, to help get pupils thinking of original ideas…


We’re sure your pupils will have some amazing, original ideas in no time!
