National Poetry Day Toolkit - No Limits Hub | Hull UK City of Culture 2017

National Poetry Day takes place on 28 September, it’s an annual celebration of poetry and all things poetical. Come together to share, read, write, enjoy and live everything poetry.

To help you celebrate poetry and use it as a launch pad for new experiences and enjoyment, we’ve teamed up with Forward Arts Foundation to develop a toolkit full of ideas and resources. From haikus to moreraps, this toolkit will help you explore poetry in your classroom.

Containing six one hour lessons, the toolkit was developed at a four-day festival with Hull primary schools.
