Get writing today with Poetry Safari...

Poetry Safari lets you take your pupils anywhere... from the savannah, the Arctic or Jurassic times to the school field or a zoo. Have a writing adventure where acrostics, riddle or sense poems help your pupils use imagery and build vocabulary too!

It’s easy to link in with your current topic or favourite book, or let your pupils be inspired by a pet, animal or creature they love... or are even scared of!

We've also launched the Online Writing Portal where pupils can type their poems directly into during a lesson (or at home!) simply sign in or create your free teacher account at to access this.
