Festive fun with Poetry By Heart – get a poem ready for Christmas!

Festive fun with Poetry By Heart - get a poem ready for Christmas!

The 2021 online Countdown to Christmas Poe-Tree goes live on 1st December. Open a digital door every day (with falling snow and jingle bells sound effects) to read and share a poem in class and at home. A daily poetry starter? An inter-house challenge? A poem or two in your school’s Christmas performance event? Video poem performances as digital Christmas prezzies for distant relatives?

Each poem page in the Poe-Tree can include a video performance and we’d LOVE to feature your pupils. We’d also love to feature teachers and trainee teachers, librarians, and all other school staff. Whichever way you go, you’ll need to be quick!

Email us now on info@poetrybyheart.org.uk and we’ll send you 2 Secret Santa poems. Choose one or both, get pupils (and/or staff) practising for a performance and then video them. We’ll send you a parental permissions form and when you’ve got your video, we’ll explain how to upload – it’s super-easy.

We’ll choose our faves for the Poe-Tree and if we have lots more, we’ll also be creating a festive performance gallery. With all the Poe-Tree poems eligible for the 2022 competition, this could be the start of your Poetry By Heart entry!
