'A well thought out and well prepared pack. This pack will most definitely allow students to grow an interest in poetry and no longer be daunted by it.' S Begum, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'The content is outstanding. Would definitely buy for next year. I also very much appreciate the guidance on each poem - this allows for flexible lesson planning but offers insight from someone who knows the poems inside out... the poet!It's wonderful to see resources making use of good-quality original poetry that can be used alongside the well-known classics.' E Evans, HoD, Independent Reviewer
'This resource makes great use of the new national curriculum, as well as providing a bridge to GCSE literature where students will need to approach poems in detail.' C Carter, Deputy HoD, Independent Reviewer
'It showed a new way of approaching poetry. I liked the key questions element at the beginning - it poses many questions I discuss with my department and it had a clear OFSTED and child centered focus.' R Goulds, HoD, Independent Reviewer
