Poems on every subject and for every occasion. A book packed with gems for dipping into time and time again. Perfect for primary schools.


The Works 2 by Brian Moses

The Works 2 really does contain poems on every primary-school subject and for every occasion, but it is also a book packed with fantastic poems that will delight any reader. It is a well-crafted anthology which relates literacy work across the curriculum. It has poems about Maths, Science, Geography, History, Religious Education, Information Technology, Design and Technology, Music and Art - plus good choices for assemblies and other themes such as citizenship and the environment. It also has a section dealing with subjects such as bullying, a new baby, death, changing school and making friends. A book packed with gems for dipping into time and time again.
