Aoife Farrell, Ireland, Primary, English

I'm a Primary School Teacher currently teaching children with English as an additional/second language. I've been teaching for 6 years and this is my second year in this area.

The blog is a collection of poems suitable for young children learning english. The headings that the poems fall under are in line with the topics to be covered in the Up and Away Programme, the guidelines laid out by the Department of Education in Ireland for teaching English as an additional language.

The poems are simple and vocabulary rich. They are accompanied by pictures of vocabulary and suitable for interactive whiteboard use. They will have worksheet and whiteboard activities to accompany them soon.

The idea for the site came about due to frustration trying to find poems simple enough for young english language learners to understand, learn and enjoy.
