I think the poetry is good and short. You can understand. Not too many words.
P4 pupil

I offer sessions focussed on poetry for primary and secondary schools. These involve whole class, group and individual work, and exercise core skills: reading, discussion, note-taking, writing and presenting. I work with all levels, from P1 to S6. All sessions link to the Curriculum for Excellence literacy strand; many can be linked with other CfE strands, especially Social Studies and Expressive Arts.

I have also written a number of poetry resources for teachers.
