All of the poems in Issue 7 are also available as free poem-posters to download, print and display. There are also free, downloadable teaching resources around the poems ‘As Told by the Giant’ by Stefan Karlsson, ‘My Mate, Mark’ by Helen Dineen, and ‘Great Women of Sport Clerihews’ by Lorraine Mariner. Each resource offers ways to get to know the poem, talking points around poetic techniques, and prompts for a class activity and 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!
