We have poetry resources for all ages here: so take a look at all the different ways of playing with last year’s theme of Messages in a poem. This year’s theme is Freedom and our National Poetry Day partners are hard at work creating new resources and activities.

There will also be some wonderful posters by Sophie Herxheimer, the National Poetry Day artist/poet who has been in residence in Hull City of Culture recently, inspiring primary school pupils to show us what happens when imaginations are slipped off the leash – and freed.

Use Sophie’s posters to brighten up your walls, as the centrepieces of poetry displays, and post a picture online with #nationalpoetryday so we can admire.
