This term our focus in English has been poetry. We have absolutely loved reading a diverse selection of poems from a variety of poets. On Friday we will be holding a Poetry Slam so to get us buzzing about poetry we were lucky to have poet Andy Tooze visit us.
We started the day with a whole school assembly where Andy performed his poems and got us up and joining in.
Throughout the day each class had a workshop with Andy were they learnt a poem and wrote their own poems.
At the end of the day we had a special assembly where a few children from each class performed their poems (even some of the teachers and adults performed too).
It was such a fantastic day and we are all so excited for the poetry slam on Friday now!
