KS2/3 Wonderwords Poetry Roadshow

"I learned that I actually really enjoyed poems and that they can be about almost anything" KS2 Child, Heighington Primary School, Darlington

Wonderwords is an interactive performance and creative writing workshop which brings poetry and wordplay to life for children aged 7 to 12 years. The session offers children an active route into listening to poetry, engaging physically and emotionally with ideas, and writing their own imaginative responses. Children are invited on a journey through different poetry worlds where they meet new words and poems, and take part in creative activities and drama games. Along the way they build a collection of lines of poetry which result in a final poem to take away. Teachers receive a resource pack with follow-on ideas and further reading suggestions.
