Drawing from the findings of CLPE’s Poetry in Primary: What We Know Works booklet, this workshop will explore how a focus on poetry in the classroom can increase children’s motivation to read, write and perform.

Through a range of interactive activities, we will investigate how well-chosen poetry and thoughtfully planned activities can increase children’s comprehension of language and engage children in deeper response in reading, as well as how poems can be used to develop children’s own use of language; inspiring them to write creatively and independently.

Participants will be introduced to a wide range of poetry with ideas that can easily be transferred to the classroom, with groups of readers and writers in libraries or other reading groups.
