loving the poetry basket!

This is our third term of using the poetry basket poems in my childminding setting.It has been especially good for my older children,who have loved learning the new rhymes which they say out loud for their friends,they look so proud of themselves.Even the younger 2 years olds have been learning some of the words,their favourite being the chop chop and the popcorn poem!

Absolute brilliant selection of poems with great use of vocabulary for language development. Love the fact that the peoms sink seasons which is just what I needed!!

Amazing!

This resource has proved so useful as a starter for Helicopter Stories sessions as well as at other times during the day. I've been surprised by how well my reception children have engaged with the rhymes. It has been a great way of developing children's listening and communication skills which we had all noticed had suffered during the lockdown.

Fun way to improve language

What a fabulous way to improve language and vocabulary, as well as confidence and expression. I love these poems and cannot wait to share them with children.

Poetry has been a bit of a hard area of literacy to incorporate and the poetry basket makes it easy, fun and a part of the every day.

This is a game changer!

We have been using the poetry basket for almost 18 months now. It has been invaluable for giving us a shared cannon of poetry and rhymes we can use throughout the day. The children love returning to favourites and they remember them well. Trisha's videos provide an excellent guide to performing the poems and it is this 'performance' aspect that really brings them to life. Thanks Trisha we love it!

Getting back to Nature

Thank you for all the wonderful poems. At the moment, I am training to become a Forest School Leader and have been trying to connect the two courses together. Many of the poems from Spring and Summer lend themselves to being said outside under the trees or when going on a mini beast hunt. Looking forward to sharing them with the nursery children.
