Our free resources are primarily aimed at teaching poetry and creative writing to children aged between 5 and 18 years old. Lesson plans are in line with the National Curriculum and written for Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. In addition to lesson plans we offer complete packs to support the teaching of both poetry and creative writing themes at www.TES.co.uk. Our username is YoungWriters and we have over 50 resources, including cross-curricular activity booklets, such as Easter, Vikings or Ancient Egyptians, to lesson plans, planning sheets and author fact packs. These resources are suitable for use in schools as well as for elective home education/home schooling.
If you'd like your young writer to try their hand at a workshop or word game, or find a good book to read, then have a look in the young writers' section for lots more inspiration!
Don't forget to sign up to our free writing tips and monthly newsletters, that bring you news, competitions and ideas to inspire and enthuse the reading, writing and enjoyment of poetry and creative writing.
We've also included a list of Useful Links to third party websites that also have information and support home schooling/elective home education in the UK.
We welcome your feedback and suggestions on what you'd like to see included in the Home Education section. Please complete our form. If you're interested in writing a guest blog about your child's experiences with home schooling/elective home education, or would like to be added to our book reviewers list, please get in touch
