Learning Resources

Roger McGough and Valerie Bloom Learning Resources

Do your pupils love animals? Using this resource, you'll be able to get them to love poetry too, with activities exploring animal poems by these well-loved wordsmiths. From organising a protection fundraiser to creating animal couplets, the activities in here are sure to get your pupils immersed in these poets and their motley collection of animal characters.

The resources have been created to support our Book Week Scotland Authors Live event with Roger McGough and Valerie Bloom on 27 November 2014, but you can use them at any time to get your pupils exploring the work of these fantastic poets. If you missed the event, don't worry: you'll be able to watch it in our Watch on Demand section.
