Ten Troika Poets Collaborate for National Poetry Day 2021

As National Poetry Day is upon us in less than a month (7 October), we are excited to share some fun children’s resources in collaboration with Troika Books that will make your National Poetry Day the best. 

Troika Books is a small independent children’s book publisher set up in 2019, who publish a wide variety of stories and poetry books. This year, we’ve got three of their books on our recommended poetry books (Saturdays at the Imaginarium, Little Light and Polka Dot Poems) which you should definitely go check out!

We are delighted that ten of their poets have collaborated on creating poems based around this year’s theme of ‘choice’. These poems are accompanied by great resource packs and creative ideas that would be suitable for children around KS2.

Created with teachers, librarians and parents in mind, the resources are all available to download for free to use and adapt for your own purposes. The 10 poems and resource pack is available HERE.

You can find all the resources (including a downloadable printed resource) by following this link: https://www.troikabooks.com/blog/choice

And you can watch the full video of the poets performing their poems below:
