The purrfect poetry writing activity for 7-11 year-olds!
Peculiar Pets is about to take your young writer on an adventure that’s creative, exciting and lets their imagination run wild!
What would your young writer’s perfect peculiar pet be? An acrobatic bunny? A tech savvy puppy? A vegan crocodile? A giraffe that likes to race? A superhero cat?
Your young writer can create an animal mash-up, be inspired by their perfect pet or make their own awesome animal to write their poem about. It’s a great theme for sense, narrative or riddle poems as well as acrostics and rhymes. It also showcases poetic techniques such as imagery and alliteration.
It’s a roarsome poetry writing activity you and your young writer will love!
If you haven't got a printer, don't panic! Your young writer can draw their picture, write their poem out and send us a photo, or type it up and email it over instead.
Our 10 favourite published poets will each win a fantastic creative writing goody bag!
Every entrant receives a sticker and bookmark. A certificate of merit for all young writers chosen for publication!
