Young Explorers l Become a Poet
Fantasic For Families

Hello Young Explorers, This week we would like you to take on the role of a Poet! I am very excited to tell you that Young Explorers will have a very special guest Matt 'man' Windle - The Poet with Punch - who will be exploring the career as a poet with you! Matt Windle, the Poet with Punch, is Birmingham's Poet Laureate 2016-2018. 

Poetry Task: To create your own found poems, search through old or recycled magazines and then cut out interesting words and phrases. Look for different colours and styles/fonts of writing.  Once you have collected your words or phases, arrange them on your paper. Try and look for a topic or theme your words may express to help create your poem. You may not want all of your chosen words if you think it does not fit the theme of your poem. Try moving the pieces around on the coloured paper until you are happy with how the words flow together. Once you are happy with how your poem looks on the coloured paper, glue each one down. You may want to decorate your page around your poem with pictures or drawings that fit with your poem topic.
