Alsager School

National Poetry Day 1st October

National Poetry Day is the annual mass celebration that encourages all to enjoy, discover and share poetry.  Throughout the day, teachers of all subjects at Alsager School will be sharing their favourite poems with our students.  We are going to celebrate the fact that we can all be poets through a variety of activities in form time and English lessons.  To get involved please visit https://nationalpoetryday.co.uk/poems/poems/ .  

If you would like to discuss poetry with your child but are unsure of how to begin, you could ask the following questions: 

Why do you like – or not like – this poem?

What do you think the poet is trying to say?

How does the poem make you feel? Why?•Are there any lines or words you especially like?


An anthology of the poems explored throughout the day will soon be made available.
