On Thursday 5th October, the secondary students celebrated the World Poetry Day by being exposed to a wide range of activities and poetry, in various lessons, across the key stages. The theme of this year’s poetry day was “Refuge”. In History,Year 9 read some Victorian poetry reflecting the current topic of Victorian life. Other classes wrote themed sonnets and some listened and gained an appreciation of performance poetry. We really think that this has inspired our students to write poetry. Soon, we will launch our annual poetry writing competition, which is externally judged, to encourage the art of poetry as a form of self expression.
World Poetry Day was celebrated throughout Primary, on Thursday 5th October. Each class thoroughly enjoyed being fully engaged, and immersed, in a myriad of different genres of poetry – all exploring the meaning and importance of this year’s theme, “REFUGE”. The children were really inspired to write creatively and teachers are full of praise for their achievements and the high standards of the work they produced. The poetry floodgates were well and truly opened as can be seen in their work, which is showcased through an impressive display in school. We are delighted to say that the children’s enthusiasm to learn and work creatively does not wane as they progress through Primary and Secondary.
From Nursery to Year 6 we have revelled in the children’s oral poetry presentations, the sharing of their poetic writing and the beautiful illustrations and artwork exploring imagery.
Our children never fail to impress – well done to you all!
