Perform a Poem launched at National Theatre


This new LGfL resource was launched at the National Theatre on the 3rd November by Michael Rosen. London teachers can upload their performance poetry using their LGfL log in – allowing their children’s poetry to reach a much wider audience. Poet Michael Rosen had the idea for Perform-a-Poem while he was the fifth Children’s Laureate (2007-9). He wanted to create a website where young people could upload videos of their performances of poems and browse other children’s poetry performance videos, as a fun way to help children engage with poetry in the classroom. Perform-a-Poem is part of Michael’s Poetry-Friendly Classroom website, which offers teachers video tips, activity sheets, links and other resources to help make their classrooms poetry-friendly.
