During Key Stage 2, pupils should read and write a variety of styles of poetry. This resource could be used as part of celebrating King Charles III becoming King and learning more about him. Pupils will write their own acrostic poems about the King. Pupils could use the different templates to write simple words that describe King Charles III or to create sentences about the monarch.

Pupils in Key Stage 2 could explore the use of synonyms to find alternative words to help them complete their acrostic poems.
