KS3 poetry

Whether you are introducing your key stage 3 English Literature students to unseen poetry, exploring poetic form, or writing poetry, you'll find engaging teaching resources, lesson plans, resource packs, printable worksheets and PowerPoints which celebrate the beauty of this versatile literary form. 

Choose from hundreds of classroom resources and poetry lessons on unseen poetry and poetic devices, or focus on the work of a range of poets including William Blake, Ted Hughes and Grace Nichols. You might also like our KS3 poetry anthology, Poetry through the ages

If your students are writing poetry, try our poetry slam and spoken word resources, or take inspiration from Trevor Millum, Teachit’s poet in residence, who shares his teaching and poetry writing ideas in our Poetry Place.
