Everyone a Writer - Poetry with Performance Poet Andy Craven-Griffiths
As part of this year's Everyone A Writer celebrations, poet and performer Andy Craven-Griffiths visited the school library, providing reward session for Y7, 8 and 9 students on Thursday 7th July.
These students were nominated by their English teachers for their submissions to the anthology and general positive behaviour and engagement in English lessons. Andy wrote poems that incorporated students’ names as an icebreaker, and students worked together to create imagined lives lived as animals, wrote about their important memories using linguistic techniques and imagined worlds with dramatic rule changes governing their lives.
Beautiful and imaginative pieces were written and students enjoyed a creative writing session with a successful poet.
