Let me ‘edu-tain’ your pupils! Science meets poetry in my lively work with early years and primary children, tailored to your particular needs. This takes the form of:

- curriculum-linked, cross-curricular poetry performances

“Every primary school in the UK should book
this enjoyable show”
Ledbury Reporter
read full review

- curriculum-linked, cross-curricular poetry writing and/or performing workshops

“A great session - perfectly tailored to the curriculum and children’s  needs.”
Helen Mudd, Year 6 teacher
Driffield Junior School

‘The schools were treated to a fantastic experience, as your approach, Anneliese, was instructive, entertaining and totally inspiring.
A memorable experience for the students.’
Fran Bradley, ‘Poets in Schools’ Coordinator,

“Well organised, super resources, good range/balance of activities so children focused and on task. Super photographs taken by the children.”

I also provide a unique ‘Poet in Residence’ programme.

theBigBuzz in your school

Uniting all my educational work is theBigBuzz ‘edu-tainment’ philosophy of:

  • providing cross-curricular learning through laughter, rhythm and rhyme.

Whatever the project, my goal is always the same:

  • to inspire the participants, and to leave them buzzing with excitement, enthusiasm and confidence.

‘Anneliese entertained us all with her brilliant Buzzing! show: a selection of her wonderful poems and stunning photographs with musical interludes. We also learned quite a lot of science
along the way!’
Cradley Primary School, Herefordshire

Events can be held at your school, or at another suitable venue, such as a museum, environment centre, or park.
