Happy National Poetry Day

Thursday 28th September is National Poetry Day.

Have you read the poem Henry writes in Horrid Henry’s Big Bad Book? It’s his favourite poem, and it’s called I’m Gonna Throw Up. Watch out!

There will be readings and events all over the country to celebrate the day, and you can find out more about how to celebrate poetry here, download resources to help mark the day in schools.

Why not take part by submitting your favourite word on twitter using the hashtag #FreeTheWord as part of the BBC’s Local Poets Project.
