All of the poems in issue 4 are also available as free poem-posters to download, print and display. There are also free, downloadable teaching resources around the poems ‘Anticipation’ by Sarah Ziman, ‘Pirate Song’ by Jane Newberry, and ‘King of the Moles’ by Gwenno Gwilym. Each resource offers ways to get to know the poem, talking points around poetic techniques, and prompts for a class poem and then an individual poem. Please click on the titles below to download the posters and teaching resources.

We would love to see the poems your children create in response to Tyger Tyger. Tag us on Twitter @tygertygermag or email us on for some free, personalised feedback!
