The poems have been carefully chosen to appeal to the age ranges.

The collections meet the range of objectives for poetry and the National Literacy Strategy as specified in the Literacy Framework. They have been selected by David Orme and Brian Moses, two well-known children’s poets.

Each level is accompanied by Teacher’s Notes that link poems to objectives in the National Literacy Framework, providing creative teaching ideas and photocopiable Activity Masters.

There are two other strands in the Spotlight on Poetry series: ‘Poems Around the World’, and ‘What kind of Poem?’.
