The focus for this project was on poetry. Teachers led sessions, using different stimuli, and the pupils worked with a ‘Poet for a Day’, producing a wonderful set of poems on ‘The Queen’s Handbag’.
Their grant funded Sarah-Jane Arbury, a poet from Bristol who led the first teacher day of the year.
“Sarah-Jane led a series of group activities that culminated in a variety of writing tasks. The highlight of the morning for many was when we divided into groups to write and perform a poem about the individuals in the group.”
