Get writing today with Poetry Safari...

Poetry Safari lets you take your young writer 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 child use imagery and build vocabulary too!

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

If you haven't got a printer, don't panic! Your young writer can draw their picture, then write their poem out and send us a photo, or type it up and email it over instead... with a little help from you!
