Written by Brian Moses and Roger Stevens, ex-teachers who now visit primary schools to perform poetry and lead workshops, this book is packed full of imagination-stretching ideas to ignite the spark in all children, whether they be more able or less able writers.

The book includes over 70 poems to inspire pupils, written by children who’ve taken part in the author’s workshops along with examples of work by the authors and other professional writers. These poems act as stimuli to demonstrate to pupils what good looks like and will inspire them to create their best writing.

With activities to develop both poetry and prose, this book is an essential toolkit for primary school teachers. The prose activities explore character-building, adding conflict and suspense and creative ways of developing dialogue. The poetry activities not only teach pupils poetry techniques such as similes, metaphors and personification – they also show them that any subject can be explored through poetry.

With this book on your bookshelf, you will never be short of ideas.
