Perform a Poem

Perform a PoemPoet Michael Rosen, whilst fifth Children’s Laureate (2007-9), introduced the idea of creating a poetry-based website as a fun way to help children engage with poetry in the classroom.  It would allow young people to upload videos of their performances of poems and browse other children’s poetry performance videos.

As a result, the Perform-a-Poem site was developed by Booktrust in association with Michael Rosen and the LGfL, who also host the site. The site is now part of Michael’s Poetry-Friendly Classroom website that offers teachers video tips, activity sheets, links and other resources to help make their classrooms poetry-friendly.
