Help your pupils explore their emotions & celebrate individuality...
With This Is Me, give every pupil the chance to shine!
Young Writers invites your pupils to write a poem for This Is Me and celebrate themselves in verse.
Your pupils can explore who they are and it’s a great way to discuss emotions in a safe space. From writing about someone who inspires them to their dreams for the future or even an acrostic using their name or a word that describes them, there is so much to get your pupils enjoying poetry writing.
It’s National Poetry Day on 7th October 2021 and the theme is “Choices” – This Is Me complements this fantastic annual event as your pupils can choose to empower themselves, and others, through their words.
There's a ton of free resources for you to download, including a handy parent info guide to explain how to take part, an engaging video, a fantastic lesson plan, an idea generator as well as example poems and video poem inspiration to help support your pupils to write their 'This Is Me' poems in any style.
If you haven't tried the Online Writing Portal yet (where your pupils type their work during a lesson or as homework) check it out today at www.youngwriters.co.uk/teachers/
