Primary (9-11): Exploring Poetry and Visual Art – with John Hegley

Imagine diving right into a picture – what would you see, hear, feel, smell? What’s beyond the frame, and what might happen next? Poet, musician and spectacles-wearer John Hegley is a firm friend of The Poetry Society, and we’re very pleased he’s shared this Arts Council funded project with us. Click here for a resource pack to inspire upper primary children – at school and at home – to explore imagined stories behind works of art and create poems and drawings in the process. You’ll need a free TES account to download this one.

The pack provides imaginative activities and guidance, along with practical tips, cross-curricular potential and a Resources section packed with further useful links.
