More Poetry Please

After enjoying their recent poetry unit in English, some pupils were selected to take part in a special poetry workshop led by the famous children's poet, Brian Moses. Working incredibly hard throughout the day, Markus, Courtney and Zac , under  Brian's  expert guidance, crafted some wonderful poems. Focussing on rhythm, imagination and life experiences the children produced  a range of poems which were shared with pupils from schools across the area.

 The importance of using your imagination to create exciting images was highlighted in an entertaining and amusing way. Brian gave a spellbinding rendition of his Snake Hotel poem which ended the all day workshop.
 Mrs Fieldgate purchased a signed copy of "The truth about teachers" which Zac, Markus and Courtney are going to share with rest of Year 5.
