Reading - Paul Cookson Football Poetry


This week try some reading of poetry instead of stories. Paul Cookson is a poet and performer. He has produced a series of poetry videos using the link above on the themes of creepy crawlies, brothers and sisters, football, teachers and disgusting stuff. Watch him performing some poems, and then follow his step by step guide to creating your own!


He actually visited our school a few years ago. I have attached some of his poems below and a booklet with further poems in about performance poetry and reading poems aloud. Have a go at reading or writing some poetry or both this week.
