Autumn is a season with of so much colour, perfect inspiration to get kids writing. You can make really simple Autumn poems and decorate them with leaves that you find during a nature walk.

Acrostics are a great for young children to think up their own simple poems, using the letter sounds as a prompt. Sensory poems are another great idea, where children are prompted to write about what they see, hear, taste, smell and feel during Autumn.

I’ve put together a couple of free printable packs full of Autumn poem templates, writing prompts and Autumn themed frames for children to write on this season.

The packs are split into black and white style, or full colour so that you can choose what’s best for you – or go for both!
