We have also developed a poetry spine to help develop this love of reading. In EYFS and KS1, the children listen to and join in with rhymes and poems each day.. These poems have been taken from Pie Corbett’s poetry spine. In KS1 they have a core poem for the week that they will listen to, recite and perform!
In KS2, children will have a key poet for each half term. We have poetry recitals, where they can perform their poems.
In addition to this, children will listen to a range of poems throughout the year, during their ‘read aloud’ time. Children will also experience hearing and writing poems within their English lessons. Poems will be added to the poetry spine as and when teachers feel that they are appropriate.
