Poetry Emotion contains a treasure trove of original poems to stimulate a child's observation and deep thinking; to affirm individuality and a sense of belonging; to express a myriad of feelings; and to develop meaningful skills for living.
The 50 poems are organised under 12 value-based topics, providing an ideal vehicle to address social and emotional values at Key Stage 2.
They can be used with great effect in Collective Worship, and readily related to English, PSHCE, SEAL and RE in the classroom.
The poems in each section are offered with introductory suggestions for ways in which the topics can be unpacked.
Topics include: Whose world? Who am I? Who is my neighbour? What's so special about the Bible? It's not fair!
