Brilliant resource

The Poetry Basket is a resource that we have been using at Becket for a while - it is so accessible, and while we are experiencing a period of home learning for some children, it has been a wonderful tool for connecting with families at home. Everyone can learn the poems and actions, and we can perform them 'together' online. Just brilliant!

What an amazing resource!!

In North Somerset, The Poetry Basket has re-ignited the passion in educators for learning poetry to support children's language. Across our Early Years settings in North Somerset this project has strengthened parental partnerships with regard to children's language development and it has created a real buzz for learning, in spite of difficult times with Covid. Wonderful 🙂
