Item description for Poems for Children to Enjoy - And Teachers Too by Eleanor Mcleod...

This collection of poems is ideal for the primary classroom as it covers seasonal topics such as Harvest, Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night, Christmas, Pancake Day, Easter and many others. There are also poems about the weather and about a variety of creatures which could be used to support the curriculum. Most of them have already been enjoyed by Eleanor McLeod's discerning young pupils. Using poems such as these as a starting point for learning can be fun and informative.

Eleanor McLeod is from Swansea, Wales and it was when she began her Primary School teaching career in 1966 that she started writing poems for her pupils. When she decided to change direction and become a professional actress she continued to write poems, stories and dramatic monologues. In 1984 after the birth of her son Thomas, she returned to the classroom where all the old favourites and many new ones were tried and enjoyed once again.

As a teacher of the LAMDA Speech and Drama syllabus and a member of the LAMDA Examining board and a adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festivals she realises how welcome and useful a collection of poems like this will be to teachers and performers.


I'm told to write about crispy leaves, And waving golden harvest sheaves, Or fruit that's glowing on the tree, But that sort of poem isn't me.

I'll write about the wild grey sea, With waves that rise up angrily And wind blown beaches, driven sand As Winter starts to own the land.

Teacher talks about crusty bread And berries black and apples red, The turning colours of the tree, But that sort of poem isn't me.

I'll write about hailstorms driving by The stark bare trees against grey sky, The fog that swirls, the frost that bites, The early dark of the longer nights.

Lightning squiggles like silver wire, The welcome of curling up by the fire, The relentless rattling of driving rain And between me and Autumn, the window pane!
