    I've searched online but can't find it anywhere! Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  3. He collects bottle tops,
    Toilet roll holders,
    Dead insects,
    Bits of rock and stones
    Of interesting shapes and colours,
    Half-made models,
    Stickers, badges, pencils,
    Feathers, germinating seeds,
    Used socks (under the bed)
    Broken saucers that he never mends,
    Torch batteries, glass marbles,
    Oh - and friends.

  6. Do you know that if you really want to make poetry come alive you could book a poet such as Trevor Millum or his friend, Bernard Young, to come to your school for a day. See: http://bernardyoung.wordpress.com/2012/03/24/a-performance-poet-in-your-school/ and http://mouseandmuse.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/double-talk-at-ropery-hall/
    Best wishes
