Spotlight on Poetry: Poems Around the World provides three collections of modern and traditional poems from around the world. The chosen poems illustrate a range of poetic forms and ways in which poetry is used in different cultures. Poems Around the World 2 is suitable for ages 7-9 (Year 3-4/P4-5).
The Poems Around the World selection features poets such as John Agard, Valerie Bloom, James Berry and the work of many other poets from a variety of countries. Each collection is available as both a pupil reader and as a Big Book. The readers contain all the material in the Big Book plus some additional material, for example additional poems or full versions of poems that appear as extracts in the Big Book.
There are 3 levels in each strand, corresponding to Years 1/2 (Poems Around the World 1), Years 3/4 (Poems Around the World 2) and Years 5/6 (Poems Around the World 3).
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: Classic Poems and What Kind of Poem?
