Poetry Ireland gifts primary schools with Once Upon a Covid Time series of posters

10th December 2020

Poetry Ireland is delighted to gift primary schools with the Once Upon a Covid Time series of posters - they have been sent via email to schools and are free for teachers to download and display.

The three beautifully illustrated retellings of classic fairy tales have been created by children's writer and illustrator, Mary Murphy, and were commissioned by Poetry Ireland with the support of Gill Education. 

Each one illustrates keeping yourself and others safe during these strange times, in a way that we hope entertains and engages without causing too much worry. 

Teachers can also use the posters - Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Princess and the Frog, and Jack and the Beanstalk - as inspiration for children to create their own tales, about anything that they wish!
