Poems for you to perform

Teachers: looking for poems for your pupils to perform? Well now, to help with that I’ve put together a list of poems in my award-winning book Buzzing! Discover the poetry in garden minibeasts that are fun to perform out loud.

(And you can watch me performing some of these poems here.)

Meanwhile, I’ve included other useful info. in the Teachers’ Notes, such as:

  • the different poetry forms I’ve used in the book
  • which poems are based on other well-known poems (e.g. Lewis Carroll’s ‘Jabberwocky‘ and William Blake’s ‘The Tyger‘)
  • links to online resources.

Buzzing! Teachers' Notes

Buzzing! is a great classroom resource for both poetry and minibeasts. I hope these notes help you to get the most out of the book.

Oh, and there’s also this downloadable Buzzing! Teacher Resource, which you might find handy in the classroom too.

Let me know if your pupils perform any of my Buzzing! poems or write any minibeast poems themselves. I’d love to know how they get on!
