National Poetry Day is celebrated every year in the UK, with the aim to inspire children and adults to discover and share poetry. This year Forward Arts Foundation charity, the organisers of National Poetry Day, have chosen the theme of ‘Truth’. Though, the theme should kickstart inspiration and is not prescriptive. Explore the theme with your pupils by telling a truthful story, or even a naughty lie using a poetry template!
