  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Writing Your Anthology

A fully resourced creative poetry project for Year 7

Contains a 6-lesson SoW with homework tasks and a student booklet for individual poetry anthologies.
By reading and responding to a range of poetry, from haikus to limericks to ballads, students:
  1. Develop their language skills through a wealth of varied activities
  2. Actively widen their vocabulary
  3. Recreate the effects they have learnt, in their own poetry

"A good introduction to the genres of poetry for KS3 — would easily work in KS2 too. I liked the detailed teacher planning and availability for interactivity in showing poems for the whole class on the interactive whiteboar. A lovely resource."
C Storm, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

'I particularly liked the use of the booklet, where children can record their ‘best work’. The scheme not only requires students to write their own poetry, but also aims to build the skills required for analytical writing about poems required at GCSE and beyond. The skills practised through the focus tasks enhance pupils' ability to read for meaning and to understand how meaning is created through a combination of words, images and sounds. It also equips them to use techniques in their own writing.'
L Kontos, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

  • Cross-referenced to the new NC and Reading and Writing AFs
  • Peer assessment — perfect for APP
  • Based on modern and pre-1914 poetry

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3351)
'A well-planned resource kit with adequate amount of resources/tasks. I liked the extended activities / differentiated tasks and homework tasks.' V Kondou, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'An excellent introduction to different types of poems... I felt that the scheme was excellent including frameworks so that teachers can cover these for assessment... The extension activities with dictionary definitions are excellent and I would use that idea for less able older students.The guided production of the anthology lends itself to both understanding the poetry of others and also for the students to write their own poems.' S Fallon, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'Lots of opportunities for pupils to do things actively/kinaesthetically, as well as more formal learning. Lots of key objectives covered... Good to see peer assessment included.' S McGlennon, Head of English and Independent Reviewer
'I enjoyed this... It was very well planned and detailed. It was clearly linked to framework objectives which helped in creating lesson outcomes.I liked the whole idea of a poetry booklet/anthology. It was a good way of keeping everything together... It enhances learning due to the detailed definitions and structural detail about each type of poem, and then providing examples of each poem to clarify details further.' C Barker, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
