Year 5/6 Poetry Writing at Meoncross

A small group of children were invited to Meoncross to spend the day with one of Britain’s favourite poets Brian Moses to┬ádevelop their writing skills through fun tasks and stimuli. The workshop was also a great chance to meet and work with children from other local schools.

The children listened to the poet perform some of his own writing as well as work alongside him to write their own poetry using repetition and personification. At the end of the day, the children had the opportunity to buy one of his books and even get it signed by him.

It is fair to say that the children were challenged today but that their outcomes were amazing!
