Year 8 Poetry Competition
Well done to all students involved in the Halloween Poetry Competition
To tie in with National Poetry Day, On Thursday 18th October, some year 8 pupils met and participated in a workshop with Giovanni ‘Spoz’ Esposito, a performance poet from here in the West Midlands.
A fantastic session ensued, with pupils engaging in word battles, getting creative with rhyming couplets and learning all about performance poetry. The academy has linked up with Great Wyrley Library, where on the 7th November, six writers of the most entertaining poems based on the session were invited to a presentation evening with local poets and Spoz to celebrate the art of poetry writing and performing.
Well done, everyone!
