T-Junction School Poetry Day

Following the launch of the poetry anthology written by primary schools yesterday, we had a great day of writing and performing poetry using some of the fab poets from the T-Junction Festival. 14 schools attended and it was mind blowing just how diverse the approaches were….and how great the performances proved to be. Confidence to present and communicate with an audience is such a huge part of a skill set that a modern employee needs. This event was a great opportunity for the children to develop that skill…and boy they did. The pupils were split into smaller groups and each worked with one poet all day. From sea shanties to VR inspired journeys, the theme of Endeavour underpinned it all. You can see form the pics below how much the children enjoyed it:
