I teach a Year 5 class and we ahve recently been doing a someone staid narrative poetry topic in Literacy. To brighten it up I hae been reading thre Revolting Rhymes to them, and they have absolutely loved them! It is an ideal way of getting kids enthusiastic about poetry, not always an easy task. The are modern and in simple everyday language, hilariously funny and make poetry accessible for every child. My class gasped with delight, giggled, cringed, and raved. They have been talking about Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes non stop to anyone who will listen ever since - what better recommendation can you get?
