Poetry is fun and any child can master it.
Which is good news, given that poetry has been given a much greater emphasis in the National Curriculum over the last few years.
I offer several different poetry workshops – all fun and all aimed at inspiring children and boosting their confidence.
Sometimes schools ask me to help each child write their own individual poem. Other times the children work in pairs to produce a poem. One of my most popular workshops is where we create a brand new poem as a class, before adding actions to it and performing it. Not only does this link with the Curriculum requirement for children to recite poems, it is also great fun and gives the children a real sense of ownership of the poem as they have helped to create it. I also run workshops on performance poetry where I will provide small groups with one of my poems, before giving hints and tips on how to turn what is on the page into a performance.
I am happy to bring my own poetry workshops or to link with current classroom topics.
My poetry workshops are appropriate for all Primary school aged children.
