Poets in the press !

This week some Newport Year 6 pupils began working on a project called "Bringing poetry to life" with the aim of enabling pupils to experience poetry in a dynamic way that will stimulate them in writing and performing their own work.  Collaborating with Samuel Cody College and funded by the HCC Arts and Museum service, the children will spend three mornings working with the Brighton based poet, Michael James Parker. The first session, held this week, went extremely well and even attracted the attention of the local press who visited half way through our session.
All the children had a wonderful time listening to Michael perform his poems and have already started to craft their own poems which will be performed  to the public in early July.

Samuel Cody 's poet mentors helped pupils start to create their own poems.
 All smiles for the local press!
