We are currently seeking schools in Bradford to get involved in our fully funded poetry programme for class groups of students in Years 5 to 9 from Spring 1, 2022. The project will run throughout the school year and will involve:
- A memorable experience with a local cultural partner, through a class visit or similar activity
- A poetry workshop with local professional poet, in-school or virtual
To register your interest please email Sean Cumming, Young Poets Project Manager.
We provide resources and curriculum-linked lesson plans, to support a teacher to deliver the following programme:
We recommend that students work in the following order:
Step 1: Getting started - Starter activities for writing poetry
Step 2: Ideas-generation stage - Your memorable class experience
Step 3: Development - A workshop with your allocated poet complemented by poetry development activities and lessons
Step 4: Performance and anthology - We will prepare an anthology of students' poems and provide opportunities for performance
If you have any questions about the project, please contact Sean Cumming, Young Poets Project Manager.
