Powerful performance poems, perfect for Literacy Hour, KS2/3 English and any fan of poetry - accompanies an audio CD on which all the poems are performed by the poets who wrote them. A highly entertaining collection of performance poems as well as an essential classroom and library resource, this book features approximately 40 poems by some of the UK's top children's poets. The focus is on poems that come to life in performance and meet the needs of the classroom teacher particularly at KS2 in terms of delivering the Literacy Hour requirements for poetry. Paul Cookson, Michael Rosen, Andrew Fusek Peters, Pie Corbett, Wes Magee, and John Rice are just some of the outstanding poets that are included, and strongly represented are poets and poems from ethnic minorities eg John Agard, Valerie Bloom, Debjani Chatterjee and Adisa. Brian Moses, the doyen of performance poets for children especially in schools, has compiled this collection to not only demonstrate the richness and excitement of poetry but to meet a wide variety of curriculum needs. Also available is an audio CD of performances of all the poems by the poets who wrote them, and notes for teachers are provided on www hodderwayland. co.uk.
