Year 5 Poetry Slam
Poetry Slam ...
As part of a National Literacy Trust initiative, devised and developed through our school, Year 5 had the opportunity to work with local poets Andy Willoughby and Bob Beagrie. Over two days, the pupils worked on their performance and composition skills, writing a poem around the theme of journeys. Pupils had to perform their final piece to an audience of staff and pupils, with four groups of children being selected to move forward to the next round.
The next round takes place at Teesside University on 12th July, where the selected groups will compete against children from other local schools in a poetry slam.
