Moving Words Performance Poetry Workshop

On Wednesday, 21st February, the whole school took part in an energetic and exciting day of performance poetry. Each year group learnt two poems linked to topics they are currently learning about in class. They then practised performing the poems and all of the accompanying actions. The poems ranged from protecting endangered species to Goldilocks and the Three Bears! The day culminated in each class performing to the rest of the school.

A big thank you to Colin, Julie and Adam from Moving Words for making the day so enjoyable.

“That was the best day ever!” Year One pupil.
