Y7 Poetry

As a part of a poetry study this term, our Y7s have been learning about the different elements that make a poem, a poem.

The inquiry explored rhythm, rhyme, imagery and theme and as well as studying the poetry of Maya Angelou, Roald Dahl, Tupac Shakur, Kae Tempest and Cathy Warry, the students made their own "spoken word" poetry videos.

They range in level of excellence, with some exquisite pieces of writing and then others who have pushed through a great deal of adversity (dyslexia, for example or terrible anxiety about being online again) and showed real grit just getting it done!
