We enjoy exploring words and being creative

We provide rich opportunities for the children to explore poetry and to work with poets. This gives the children experience of creating poetry to express themselves and of performing for different audiences. This year's celebration event will be held online on Thursday 1st October (National Poetry Day) and the theme is 'Vision'.

Here are some links to sites we use and a selection of poems for you to listen to:
