- Wickhambreaux School
National Poetry Day!
Updated: Oct 8, 2022
We heard a story with poetry sprinkled in it by Lemn Sissay in our special Poetry Day worship.
All classes have been shining a poetry spotlight on the current Children's Laureate, poet and author, Joseph Coelho.
Each class also received a book gift for their class library by Joseph Coelho.
During the day, the children have been using various styles and techniques to write poetry of their own: there have been some very impressive creations.
At playtime the children could visit a 'Poetry Stop', where a poeteer would read them a poem or two.
...and finally, children have learnt a poem off by heart to recite to the rest of the class for a sponsored poetry recital.
Phew! What a busy but thoroughly inspiring celebration of poetry.
Best wishes Hayley Redmond
