Writing Tips

Tip #1

Use the new, colourful Rhymecraft entry forms to help your pupils plan, draft and write their poem inspired by a land they’ve created! Where will their imaginations take them… from water world and candy land to Dreamsville or animal kingdom, pupils can choose their favourite thing to create a wonderful world before writing their poem.

Poems can be in any style from amazing acrostics or fantastic free verse to super sense poems and everything in-between!
