Can I have a Word?

| December 11, 2011 | 0 Comments 

Can I Have a Word, was developed by the Barbican Education team, to give teachers ideas and resources to inspire creative writing in the classroom, and features specially commissioned poems from leading UK poets.

There are four distinctive units. Changing Voices, for example, aims to make poetry come alive, engage all the senses and allow the children to be inspired to create their own. The poems from Changing Voices link directly with the poetry units of work for Y3-6 and supports non-fiction work on the life of Nelson Mandela.
