Best thing we have purchased in a very long time!

If you had have asked me to recite a poem this time last year, I would not have been able to think of 1. I'm 38. If you asked the Reception and Nursery children at our school to do the same, they would have over ten they could recite to you. Off by heart!! It is brilliant.

Highly recommended

I have been using the poetry basket since the beginning and children absolutely love it. It helps children to improve their communication and language skills while having fun and they enjoy going home and teaching the new poems to their parents. In my school we have a high number of children with English as an additional language and the poetry basket has definitely helped them with their English.
