Full Product Description
'Poetry Emotion' is a treasure trove of original poems to:
- stimulate a child's observation and deep thinking
- affirm individuality and a sense of belonging
- express a myriad of feelings
- develop meaningful skills for living
The 50 poems are organised under 12 value-based topics, providing an ideal vehicle to address social and emotional values at Key Stage 2. They can be used with great effect in collective worship, and readily relate to English, PSHCE, SEAL and RE in the classroom.
The poems in each section are offered with introductory suggestions for ways in which the topics can be unpacked. Topics include:
Who am I?
Who is my neighbour?
What's so special about the Bible?
It's not fair!
Getting on and falling out
Going for goals
Saying no to bullying
Good to be me
"Poetry speaks in as many voices as there are people to read it, conveying everything from complex ideas to simple truths. The wonderful thing about Stewart Henderson's kind of writing is that he always manages to cover both at once." - Christine Morgan, Head of Radio, BBC Religion & Ethics

Poetry EmotionMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is an excellent little collection of 50 original poems to be used in a classroom or school setting that address a wide range of themes and issues from everyday life and emotions to slightly more topical issues like disability, being on benefits and bullying.
The poems really are excellent (my personal favourites are Zoo Trip and Friend in Need) and the teachers guidance notes that go with them really help to contextualise the situation and subjects with which these poems can be used. An excellent tool for a hard pressed teacher who wants something short but interesting to use for assembly, worship or even in PHSE or other subjects lessons.
Some of the poems in here would also work really well for a range of outside school activities and youth & children’s leaders and even ministers would not go too far amiss with using this book either.
